Great Volunteer Opportunities at the KAC

We are so very fortunate to have hundreds of volunteers who donate their time each year to ensure that ours is a community Where Art Lives.

KAC volunteers are involved in a hundred different ways: baking for the Coffeehouse concerts, mending costumes for the Nutcracker, painting the walls of gallery, sorting books for the book sale, or assisting in the Next Gen Studio during our classes and summer camps…. We never run out of things to do!

Whether you are an adult with only a few hours to spare or a student looking for an ongoing commitment, we would be happy to find a role for you here at the KAC. You may click here to download a Volunteer Application 2013 and get involved. You’ll meet great people while ensuring that ours is a great community for artists and art lovers alike!
