The 2013 Creative Arts Day Camp is actively looking for high school aged student volunteers! Volunteers are assigned to a specific class and provide a helping hand for our art teachers and campers throughout the day. We have a really fun group of kids this summer and a wonderful staff–this would be a great learning opportunity for any student who is interested in working with art or kids, and would also look awesome on a college resume!
If you are interested in volunteering this summer, please download the Volunteer Application, fill it out, and send it back to us. The application includes the camp times and dates. It would be great to get applicants who can dedicate time to more than one session, but that’s definitely not necessary! Also, interested applicants are welcome to contact Alex Curley via email with questions at email@example.com.

The Department of Art Education at Virginia Commonwealth University is offering Investigation NOW: The Strange, Familiar, and Transformative, an art-based multi-disciplinary educational program for 8th and 9th grade students! This exciting new program uses art as a form of inquiry to explore contemporary issues (to include concepts such as confrontation, risk, and distortion) that transcend disciplinary boundaries. Through the hands-on exploration of the contemporary, students will dig into how these ideas intersect and overlap in the real world. This class takes place for 10 three-hour sessions on Friday evenings and is taught by graduate and undergraduate pre-service art educators.
This program is for you if:
- You love thinking across boundaries.
- You see art as an important part of the world.
- You want to dig deeply into how contemporary art ideas engage real world issues NOW.
