Help Spread the Word!
Our organization would not exist without all of our volunteers. The many things we do for the students in our community are done with pride, dedication, and a love for art!

We are looking for new members to join us in the fall. Help spread the word and let other members of our community know about the wonderful things the Art Docents do. Invite a friend to save the date and join us at our Open House in September. You can give them a sneak peak of what we do by sharing the link to our Volunteer Video.

Volunteers are the
key to our Success!

At this time of the year, when we are
winding things up here at Art Docents,

it's time to say thank you to our most
important and vital assets....our Volunteers!

 
With our Volunteers
 
~ we can personally reach out to over 3000 students ~
 
~inspire those who want to be creative or who
just need to find a passion that suits them ~

 
~help students to be critical thinkers~
 
~provide involvement in the arts which is
associated with gains in
math, reading, cognitive ability,
critical thinking, and
verbal skills. ~
 
~improve motivation, concentration, confidence,
and teamwork.~

 
connect people more deeply to the world
and open them to new ways of seeing,
"
creating the foundation to forge social bonds
and community cohesion." (Edutopia.org)~

 
We have enjoyed so many new things this year
along with some dealing with changes as well. 


Our docents have experienced loss of loved ones,
health concerns, new grandchildren,

new family members, remodels,
​caring for parents, changing jobs,

children involved sports, plays and school work.

This is life...
both good and difficult 


things happen in our everyday lives and yet 


we still make time to give back and share our time and

appreciate all the dedication of time and energy 

VOLUNTEERS 

put into our community and our program.
