Volunteer Opportunities

Titans Create at MLK Middle School

Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School is seeking passionate and creative individuals interested in working as a Classroom Art Leader for the Spring 2011 semester during our Extended-Day Program.  Classroom Art Leaders must be available to lead at least one session (although we hope more) on a Tuesday or Thursday from 4p.m.-5:25p.m.  Classroom Art Leaders will use their creativity when developing the lessons incorporating inexpensive products (i.e., recycled products, magazines, construction paper etc.) in order to teach students they can make art at home with limited resources.  This is a great opportunity for individuals interested in gaining teaching experience and one-to-one interaction with students in an out-of-school-time and hands-on environment.  Interns should have reliable transportation, and be willing to travel about 10 minutes to MLK Middle School from VCU Monroe Park Campus.  The intern should be professional, reliable, possess creativity and patience, and be willing to have fun!

ART 180

ART 180 is working to establish a more formal internship program in conjunction with  plans to open an art center serving primarily teens in the downtown arts district.  Students in these positions would work directly with and in support of our 12-week programs, and looking forward, assist with management of the youth gallery and performance space in the new location.
