Art to Go needs Volunteers
Help the arts grow in Allen - Become an Allen Art to Go volunteer!
Allen Art to Go is looking for volunteers for its arts appreciation program. Volunteers visit local elementary school classrooms and lead a monthly discussion around themed art portfolios. No art experience is necessary, simply an interest in learning, working with children, and sharing an exploration of great art. All materials and training are provided.
