Work Here

Our mission is to enrich the lives of young people by opening their minds to the power of artistic expression. 

We do this by offering classes taught by nurturing,

caring adults in a safe environment. 

You can teach classes in a variety of formats, including weekly sessions, one-day workshops, or week-long art camps. What's most important is that you'll be making a difference in the life of a child. To teach a class, please download the following two forms, fill them out and send them back to the Arts Center.

Volunteer Here

We welcome volunteers to work with our children.  You can volunteer to help in a variety of ways - from preparing and serving snacks to working as a teacher's assistant. 


Volunteer one day each week during our Fall and Spring 12-week after school session, or for a full week of summer camp. 


We welcome student volunteers, age 14 and older,

working with our children. 


Your hours spent working with the Center will count toward required community service hours.
