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

All of our fall volunteer spots are full for September – December 2019.  However, we are currently seeking volunteers for our daytime classroom programming that runs for ten weeks January – April 2020. See details for Creative Classroom Connections below.

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 90 minutes. We ask that each volunteer commit to at least 5 days of programming.

Available Creative Classroom Connections sites will be listed in November 2019.  If you have questions please email volunteer@artwithaheart.us.  Otherwise, please fill out a volunteer application and I will contact you when we have new volunteer spots available:

If you would like to earn dollars for Art With a Heart you can volunteer to work concessions at Bankers Life Fieldhouse:

  • Bankers Life Fieldhouse Concessions: 
    • One “lead volunteer” attends all scheduled AWAH events throughout the year.
    • Each volunteer attends a scheduled training to learn the stand with a concession supervisor.
    • Each volunteer will need to complete a background check, per NBA guidelines.
    • Each volunteer will need a valid liquor license and needs to complete the Responsible Alcohol Service (RAS) training.
    • AWAH picks events we want to attend.  (There is no minimum number of volunteers for each event but the lead must attend all.)
    • Volunteers earn 10% of concession sales and during non-Pacers night, they earn 13% of the sales.  The minimum donation is $50 per volunteer.   

Please submit a volunteer application by completing the form below so that you can be sure to receive the latest information on how to help children in Indianapolis learn visual arts!

Please note all adult volunteers require a background check to participate in programming.

Contact volunteer@artwithaheart.us with specific questions.


Thank you, we look forward to welcoming you to our team. :)
