VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP PROCESS
The Art Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that relies heavily on volunteers to support day-to-day operations and special events. We are currently in need of volunteers to help with the front desk and Wednesday evening Farmers' Market. Art Center volunteers work side by side with staff and are a key component in running a fun, friendly Art Center.
