While year-end is a time for reflection, it is also a time to look ahead, consider new ventures, and make resolutions, too.
If you’ve ever considered volunteering your time and talents at the Woodson Art Museum, bundling those thoughts into a positive New Year’s resolution is just the thing to do. Many rewarding experiences await!
Volunteers are at the heART of the Museum’s operation. We need YOU – men, women, and teens, too – to ensure the delivery of key services that visitors have come to expect.
With a variety of volunteer opportunities available, there should be something for everyone interested in art and in extending the Museum’s hospitality to visitors. Consider these programs:
· Docents work with school and adult groups to facilitate discussion about artworks on view.
· SPARK! friends assist adults with memory loss as they engage in conversation in the galleries and hands-on art projects.
· Gardeners tend to heirloom plantings and thematic areas throughout the grounds.
· Toddler Tuesday volunteers facilitate art-making experiences for youngsters.
These five areas touch a range of visitors and yield many delightful rewards for volunteers, including specialized training and the satisfaction that comes from making a difference at the Art Museum.
Don’t put off your involvement at the Woodson Art Museum. Make volunteering your resolution for 2011 . . . no dieting, no sacrificing. In fact, the Museum’s talented and creative staff will provide the orientation and on-going training and you’ll be the happy beneficiary, as will all those with whom you interact.
