Volunteer With Us
The CVA needs volunteers like you! Volunteers have lots of fun helping kids learn art skills, assisting customers in finding the perfect gift, bringing art activities to area events, making guests feel welcome in the galleries, serving on the Board or Committees and so much more! There are many capacities in which each individual can contribute.
One of the benefits of being a volunteer for the CVA is participation in our annual volunteer/student exhibit held in the Loft Gallery. See the gallery page for details!
Volunteers are a greatly valued part of the CVA and we know your time and effort are precious. We thank you for your choice in volunteering at the CVA!
The Volunteer Committee is looking for you! Interested in joining us? Contact our Assistant Director at the CVA: firstname.lastname@example.org or 715-842-4545
