Art Smart is preparing to resume in January 2022!

Add yourself to the communication list by signing up hereNo experience is necessary -only a desire to bring arts education to our students. We provide all materials and lesson plans.


Orientations will be held to go over grade-level specific projects, tour the Art Room, and special clay training. Volunteers do not need to have any art experience, or even be able to draw. There are many aspects of volunteering under the Art Smart umbrella.
