Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

If you are new to Old Town Artisan Studios, please fill out the volunteer application at the bottom of the page before signing up for any specific opportunity.  Thank you for your interest and support!

(Glass experience not necessary, but helpful) Work one on one with our glass instructor to help organize the studio, as well as helping prepare projects for outreach classes.  Sign up here!

We are looking for some weekly help with clay studio organization and a light cleaning of the tool shelves. Sign up here!

Yes, we know… the holidays are months away! Before you know it, it will be just around the corner! To prepare our decorations in advance, we are looking for a handful of skilled painters that would not mind volunteering their time to paint life-size holiday characters (elves, nutcracker, etc) and Christmas trees.  If interested, please email [email protected].

We are in full swing of Summer Art Camp and our students are creating an abundance of projects! Each Thursday, we will require some assistance with putting their art projects together and preparing them for pick up. Careful handling is a must since projects are extremely fragile. Sign up here!

Calling all available seamstresses! In preparation for this year’s holiday season, we are seeking help with altering our volunteer aprons. We would like to shorten the hems to make them more comfortable for our volunteers. If you are able to take some aprons home to alter, we would love to have your help! Sign up here!

Join our outreach team and help us share art experiences with local youth at the YMCA! We will be working with 2 local sites every other Monday (7/11, 7/25) and Wednesday (7/13, 7/27). Outreach classes are fast-paced, yet rewarding! Perfect for anyone that is wanting to help make a difference directly in our mission!  If interested, please email [email protected].

Have great penmanship and an eye for design? We are seeking a few chalkboard artists that can occasionally update our sandwich boards!  If interested, please email [email protected].

Are you a resident of a country club? Do you frequent businesses and stores? Help share our non-profit with our local community by helping distribute our rack cards and connect us with groups that may be interested in classes, private workshops, team building events, volunteering, and more! If interested, please email [email protected].
