No special skills are required beyond energy and eagerness to work with children through visual art.

“I Made It” Plate Painting Sessions take place on weekday afternoons in late fall. There are typically 4-6 sessions per year, and they are located at Santa Fe elementary schools. Volunteers will assist student artists in transferring their placemat designs to ceramic plates and painting plates. Help is also needed for setup and cleanup.

ARTfeast volunteer help is needed in the office during the months leading up to ARTfeast as well as during the production of three of the weekend’s’ events: Fashion Feast, Gourmet Dinner & Auction, and the Artists’ Brunch. Office jobs include: processing ticket orders and mailing tickets, preparing silent auction items, preparing goodie bags, creating table and name cards, cutting out laminated placemats, data entry, etc. Event jobs include: event setup, guest check-in, auction runner, packing artwork/auction items, guest checkout, and event cleanup. All of our ARTfeast volunteers receive free tickets to the Edible Art Tour (EAT), and event volunteers will receive a free meal at the event.

There are other volunteer opportunities related to special events, projects, and general office assistance and are usually a one-time occurrence. For more information about these opportunities, contact (505) 992-2787 or email speterson@artsmartnm.org.
