Pure Joy! Art-Making with ARTZ Philadelphia at the Woodmere Museum of Art in Chestnut Hill, PA

About

We have three different kinds of opportunities for volunteers:

1. Face-to-Face (delivery of quality-of-life enhancing programs to people living with dementia and their families, both in the community and in care facilities)

2. "ARTZ in the Making" (delivery of multi-disciplinary and multi-sensory art-making programs to people living with dementia in the community and in care facilities)

3. Behind-the-Scenes (communications, marketing, press, program evaluation, program support, publicity, general administrative assistance, Web site and social media assistance)

Monthly programs largely take place on weekdays. However, we can always use behind-the-scenes help on weekends, including prep for occasional special events!
