Volunteers Matter

May 17, 2019 By lexi-krebs

Volunteers are an inertial part of our community. They provide support and stability to almost every aspect within daily studio life. Our volunteers help us with fundraising, administration tasks, operations and work directly with our Artists. They are truly our backbone and we would not be able to provide the supports and services we do to all out artists without their help.

“They help me when I need help. They are very kind. We need more to help us do everything. If we didn’t have volunteers, things would go bonkers!”

            -North Shore Studio Artists David Jonaitis

In April, Arts of Life celebrated the committed and amazing volunteers we currently have. They are a wonderful group that does so much for the community. We are grateful for their work and devotion to Arts of Life.
