Volunteers make a big difference to our studio! If you are thinking of volunteering your time, please consider us. If you are interested in working with adults with a developmental disability, have at least half a day a week available, and have attained a current police check, please contact the studio to make an appointment. You will enjoy in-studio volunteering if you have a creative imagination along with patience to develop that in others, good communication skills and team spirit.

We appreciate all who are giving of their time now, and whom have done so in the past. Thank you to all our volunteers!
