Don't be afraid to try new things--we'll give you the skills you need to be a successful volunteer!

The Art Center offers a variety of art classes and summer camps for the artist in every child, from preschoolers to teens. Classes are offered for every interest and skill level in a broad range of media: drawing, painting, ceramics, mixed media, and digital photography. Classes are taught by professional art instructors and this fall will be outdoors and in-person or virtual.

Our ceramics instructors need in volunteer assistants to help participants, prep materials, and assist with classroom management in our classrooms. Classrooms are indoors and outdoors. This is a wonderful chance to work with a small group of children and experience creative curriculum designed by a professional artist. Instructors, volunteers, and students will practice social distancing and wear masks.

Background check required for these positions. Contact Grace Pegan Abusharkh, Director of Volunteer Engagement, for more information at
