Volunteering at the Art Center
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 Grace Pegan Abusharkh, Director of Volunteer Engagement, at Grace.Abusharkh@cityofpaloalto.org to learn more.
Volunteer positions include:
- Children's Fine Art Studio Assistants
- Adult Studio Assistants
- Administrative Volunteers
- School Program Docents
- Art Center Teen Leadership
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.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and State and County restrictions, the Palo Alto Art Center has modified and cancelled many of our programs. We are offering limited volunteer opportunities, both virtual and in-person. All in-person opportunities require mask-wearing and strict social distancing.
