Help Wanted: Art Adventure Volunteers

Required skills: You like kids!

We’re looking for Picture Person volunteers for Mia’s spring Art Adventure program at Whittier International Baccalaureate school. You won’t believe how much fun it is!

The kids are so excited to have visitors in their classroom. They love to participate and don’t care if you’re an art expert or have ever presented art before. The Art Adventure theme for this year is “Let’s Celebrate Life!”

Please consider helping out. Feel free to sign up with another Friend, or recruit a friend to become a Friend. We’ll pair you with that person or another volunteer so you’re not going it alone.

Time commitment is as follows:

  • Training at Mia on Tuesday, April 2, from 11-12:30PM (mandatory).  
  • Three 45-min classroom visits to Whittier IB School on Mondays (4/8, 4/15, and 4/22), 11-11:45AM. Note: It’s ideal if you can make it to each visit. However, you can still volunteer if you can only make 1-2 visits.
  • Optional: Meet your class at Mia for their field trip on Friday (4/26) (Times TBD)

If you’re interested or would like more information, please contact Nancy McRae at friendsoutreach@artsmia.org or call/text her at 612.240.3774.
