Become a Part of an Amazing Team of Volunteers!

Volunteers are the heart and soul of The Arts Center. 

Your creative ideas and interest in the arts are needed. Make meaningful connections through your participation.

The Arts Center encourages a diversity of area residents to apply, including people from traditionally or currently underserved communities. We welcome everyone regardless of citizenship status, color, familial status, gender identity or expression, religious observance, sex, sexual orientation, and sources or level of income.

Volunteers do it all! A few of our needs:

  • Board of Directors
  • Committees: Program, Development, Marketing
  • Welcome visitors into the ArtShop and our Galleries
  • Artfully support exhibition receptions with delectable goodies
  • Assist with arts activities in house or with community partners
  • Help keep our membership database up to date
  • Support events like our annual Art For the Heart Gala, the Pre-Owned Art Sale, and Arts Alive
  • Work with neighborhood volunteers who keep our landscaping attractive and inviting
  • Language translation support

2nd Saturday Art Days | Community Outreach

Engage community members with art and witness the difference it makes in their lives!

2nd Saturday Art Days are free monthly family-friendly events that provide community members with directed art projects led by staff and visiting artists.  Drawing and coloring materials are always provided for those who would rather doodle.  

In 2020, we began providing assembled art kits on 2nd Saturdays.  The kits come with most of the materials needed, if not all, as well as instructions in English and Spanish. Community members are invited to pick them up at The Arts Center to take home and create some art.

Past collaborations with the NAACP and Benton County Soil and Water Conservation District expanded our thinking and our reach to insure our entire community has opportunity to create.

Volunteer in the ArtShop

Are you a people person, enjoy learning about art, and want to meet more of the artist community?

ArtShop volunteers are the welcoming face of The Arts Center.

Volunteers share information about current exhibitions, upcoming events, classes & camps, assist staff, and process sales from the ArtShop and Galleries. Weekly and substitute times are available.

Adopt-a-Reception

Is food your creative outlet?

Share your tasty treats at an upcoming artist reception. The Third Thursday Corvallis Art Walk (CAW) is always more festive if there are great snacks on hand. This is an opportunity for a club, group of friends, business, or organization to connect with the arts community.  100-300+ people.

Just want to help at receptions serving beverages or greeting people? We need you too!

And More!
