Two Rivers Gallery is pleased to offer volunteer opportunities and free T-shirts with Community Art Days and Creativity Camps over the summer!!!
On July 8th and 9th Two Rivers Gallery hosts a massive event in its space and also at the civic center plaza involving artists in residence, community partners, and local artists to provide moments of sharing, learning, and enjoyment.
The gallery also hosts a wide variety of art projects to be done during Community Arts Days which are all volunteer led. Volunteers are needed and will be trained by staff before the event opens at 10:00am for both days. There are two shifts with a break and a free lunch available to volunteers who stay the whole day.
Shift 1) 9:30am-1:00pm, Shift 2)1:00pm-4:30pm
Every week from July 11th to September 2nd there are up to 20 youth from ages 6-14 engaged in art activities, walks to the park, and play time.
Camps are facilitated by gallery staff. Volunteers will be working one on one with children who need extra support while assisting with set up and cleaning of art supplies.
A maximum of two volunteers are needed for every day of the week to fill two shifts:
Shift 1) 10:00am-1:00pm assisting in morning art activities and lunch/free time, Shift 2) 1:00pm-4:00pm walk to the park as a group for play time and walk back for an afternoon art activity.
Volunteering for our summer camps offers meaningful interactions with youth and builds a strong sense of community. Volunteer experience is an asset to many of our temporary, part time, and full time positions. 3 of our staff began involvement with the gallery as volunteers as well as 2 of our 4 summer students. Two Rivers Gallery is grateful for all the community support that make our programs possible.
