Your involvement makes PenArt programs and events possible.



There's Lots of Ways to Volunteer

While Peninsula School of Art does amazing things with a small staff, our volunteers truly fill the gaps and make our mission come to life. There are no special qualifications - just enthusiasm for our programming. PenArt’s volunteer program is diverse and flexible, ranging from one-time special events to regular, monthly shifts. There are also many ways to volunteer, either interacting with the public or working behind-the-scenes on special projects.

Gallery Docents

Docents conduct visits for adults and groups of all ages to the Guenzel Gallery. If you enjoy discussing artwork with others, consider joining the docent program.

Community Program Volunteers

If you like interacting with children or have a background in teaching and/or art, you may enjoy assisting our youngest artists at a Family Art Days (the third Saturday of the month from September through May) or during a school visit.

Special Event Volunteers

Event volunteers help to staff, decorate, plan and serve at one of our many special events throughout the year. If you like working in a group, helping visitors, or want to put your creative skills to work, consider these one-time volunteer opportunities.

Other Volunteer Opportunities

If you prefer to work behind-the-scenes, you may enjoy:

  • Preparing art materials and studios for programs
  • Installing or deinstalling exhibitions
  • Serving on our Board of Directors or on a committee
