The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We help adult artists with physical or developmental disabilities make their art. If you have experience painting or creating works on canvas and/or panel or you simply like to paint, we would love to have your help.
What we’ll need from you: the ability to answer questions about techniques, an urge to organize supplies, the willingness to finish pieces (some pieces may need varnish, other may need the canvas stretched) and simply to engage with our artists on a personal level. Experience working with the disability community is not necessary, but an interest in art certainly is required.
