If you enjoy working with children and have a passion for art, join Artistry for one of our many community outreach events or programs. From Kite Day in May to one of the many art programs we facilitate for youth and teens in area libraries, there are many opportunities to engage with kids and families and have fun helping the community engage with art!
No art expertise required!
Please see below for details about two special events where we will have a family art table. Volunteers do not need to be art experts - just interested in helping families have an enjoyable experience. A staff member will be on site each day to show volunteers how the projects are done and will provide support.
