PENINSULA ART ACADEMY

The Peninsula Art Academy (PAA) is a popular place for locals and tourists to visit and take classes. Since it is close to the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, there is a steady stream of visitors before the train is loaded and when people get off. There are times when the Academy has a real party atmosphere; full of visitors, artists, students and generally interesting people. There are also lulls that allow quiet time for paperwork. A benefit to volunteers who are artists or crafters is the opportunity to display their crafts and make new friends.

Our Volunteer Coordinator will train each volunteer. Most of the procedures are documented for easy reference.

Volunteers greet visitors and explain the Academy's educational offerings and aid customers in the Gallery. All the items in the Gallery are made by local artisans. Other responsibilities include, but are not limited to:


Assist and complete sales
Answer phone inquiries
Manage sign ups for classes
Receiving, tagging and recording artist inventory
Help set up exhibits, decorations, displays
Use computer for various administrative tasks
Open/Close the Academy and gallery (First shift opens, second shift closes)

Perform other routine tasks as required.

In June 2000, Steve Craig and Matt Kubinyl organized a plan for establishing a non-profit art academy in Peninsula, Ohio to promote the arts, combining the natural and cultural benefits of Peninsula, and to use regional artists to serve as staff faculty and other nationally prominent artists as visiting instructors and speakers. Further, the Peninsula Art Academy was created to promote a cultural venue where artists and craftsmen come to learn and create fine art.
