Art Awareness Volunteers Needed

  • If you enjoy putting together projects for kids, we could use your help in the K-5 classrooms. We have plenty of resources and training sessions available to help you with any level. The classroom teacher is also there to assure you have a positive experience. You do NOT need to have a background in teaching or art. Contact Jen Crow for more information: vestaj@sbcglobal.net.
