Volunteer Opportunities:

Our 37th Annual Collectors’ Night Auction is scheduled for May 13, 2023!


VisArts’ legacy has endured for six decades since its founding in 1963 as the Hand Workshop, providing a place for youth to engage in the arts and for artists to learn, create and build community. We’re celebrating our Diamond Anniversary! 60 years of making, art education, and exceptional programming. Collectors’ Night and 60th anniversary celebration is on Saturday, May 13, 2023, at 6 p.m.

Volunteers help make this event happen. For every 2 hours of volunteer work, you earn a $10 credit towards a class at VisArts (see below)!
