We rely on our volunteers every day to operate. As many as 25 artists might create in our studios on a given day. Each day we are helping artists in the art-making process and work hard to create an atmosphere that invites fun and fellowship.
Ongoing needs include gardeners, kitchen workers, artist mentors, and studio and office assistants.
Our space is filled with people and activities that make our volunteers invaluable. If you love creative communities and have a desire to serve artists with disabilities, we welcome your application and look forward to meeting you!

Artists for Re-Design
Imagine Art is seeking volunteer artists to launch new creative programming that tests critical elements of a program re-design. Imagine Art aims to re-design its core program, the Fine Art Studio, in order to intentionally develop artists for micro-business, exhibition, and sales.
Imagine Art will initiate a “soft launch” of the redesign in July and August with the final re-design launching in September with 10 AmeriCorps Members serving as Artists in Residence.
The commitment: Imagine Art seeks volunteers to serve a minimum of 2 to 4 hours at least one day per week, with the option to serve up to 5 days per week. The studio is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The available opportunities to serve:
Art Teacher: Teaching small group art class held between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. Please indicate your preferred media: drawing, painting, ceramics, mosaic, fiber arts (sewing, weaving, knitting), or creative writing.
Studio Facilitator: Provide small group studio support between 1 and 4 p.m. Please indicate your preferred media: drawing, painting, ceramics, mosaic, or fiber arts.
Activities Coordinator: Facilitating arts-based activities that include weekly peer critique sessions, museum field trips and guest artist speakers. Morning and afternoon options available.
