Volunteer Opportunities



Art Corp Volunteers Needed

Get involved in your child’s class by volunteering for Art Corps!
Many classes are still in need of Art Corps Volunteers to help teach and assist with art lessons in the classroom. Even if you don't want to teach a lesson, helpers are very important as well! The parent workshops are a lot of fun, and your children will love having you be a part of their art projects! Please talk to your class’s Art Corps liaison or your child’s teacher if you would like to
volunteer for Art Corps. We are looking forward to a wonderful year of Enrichment for our kids.


Questions? Please email Art Corps Program Coordinator Lisa Shadburn at Dr.Lisa_Shadburn@yahoo.com
