Volunteering at the Art Center

 Family Day Volunteers

There are so many ways to share your time and enthusiasm with the Palo Alto Art Center! From regular weekly commitments to occasional drop-in opportunities, Art Center volunteers support all aspects of education, special events, exhibitions, and more—and there is a place for you. 

Get involved! All volunteers 12+ are welcome to join the Art Center volunteer team. We have opportunities for adults and teens, and ways for the entire family to volunteer together too. Contact artcenter@cityofpaloalto.org to learn more. 

Volunteer positions include:

  • Children's Fine Art Studio Assistants 
  • Adult Studio Assistants 
  • Ceramics Apprentices 
  • Administrative Volunteers
  • School Program Docents 
  • Art Center Teen Leadership 
  • Counselors-in-Training 

Art Center volunteers are artists too! We are excited to share an online exhibition of their artwork. The volunteer exhibition celebrates the artistic endeavors of our community of volunteers. (A Palo Alto City Library account is required to log in and view the online exhibition.)
