We love our volunteers! Volunteers are an integral part of the community at the Art School, and we are always happy to have their assistance.

We can use your help at our famed Annual Pottery Show and Sale, at our thrift shop in Westwood, NJ, and with our children's classes and special projects. Art experience is not necessary, so please consider donating some of your time and energy!
