We're looking for volunteers to serve on the Visual Arts Guild board and chair committees in the 2024-25 school year. There are a variety of roles and needs. You can serve on a committee, lead a committee, volunteer once or once a month, be at the school weekly or never leave your home office! Some specific needs are:

  • Portfolio Day: This is typically 1-2 days in October. Volunteers will work with faculty, plan hospitality, and recruit volunteers.
  • Fundraising: Recruit a friend or two and help with fundraising efforts throughout the year.
  • North Texas Giving Day: This is one of our biggest fundraisers. If you have any success with NTX Giving Day, we could use your expertise.

We welcome anyone interested in helping in any capacity. We have a strong board, supportive faculty and plans of work so you'll have lots of support. Email if you're interested or have questions!
