Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Art With a Heart.

Creative Classroom Connections: Early childhood classroom volunteers will work directly in a classroom, with the teacher and an AWAH staff member present, to integrate art with learning. No art or teaching experience is required. All needed training will be provided. These classroom volunteers will help prepare and clean up supplies, assist the teacher, and lead mini-lessons for early childhood students in small groups. Classes are during the school day, one day a week for up to 90 minutes. We ask that each volunteer commit to at least 5 days of programming.  Available sites for Winter/Spring 2020 include:
