Try LinkedIn, literally just search art direction internship/intern and just connect and reach out to anyone that has shared a lead. Make sure your book is solid and shows off your conceptual skills. Portfolio school helps but honestly look at the books from brand center and mimic them but with your own original ideas. There’s some free Reddit stuff on YouTube as well
