Volunteer Opportunities

The Port Aransas Art Center welcomes volunteers! Talented and committed volunteers are the backbone of the Art Center. Without you, we could not provide the artistic outlet and services that we do for the community. As the Center grows, the need for dedicated volunteers is growing.

Special Volunteer Request

Calling all art teachers! Please consider teaching a class, workshop or one of our special event classes like, “Wine, Whine and Design.” Let us know about your talents and interests by using the secure contact form found on this website. Classes are  held during the daytime and some occur during the evenings.

Please consider sharing some of your valuable time and talents. Here are a few other ways you can help:

  • Staffing the Center (front desk, facility care and upkeep)
  • Enhancement and expansion of our membership
  • Assisting with fundraising events
  • Assisting with First Fridays evening receptions (sign up ahead of time to help)
  • Liaison support when we have visiting instructors

Come see what art can do for you, and what you can do for the arts! Thank you.
