And we guarantee you will have fun doing it!

Summer 2021 Family Art Days (FAD)

Can you help us with one of these?

  • We need help on Saturdays at noon to assemble the take-home packs and also help to distribute them from 1:00-3:00.

  • We need assistance setting up the tables and art supplies in the orchard on Saturday mornings at 10.

  • Volunteers are needed to assist the instructor with the classes in the orchard 11-2 or a portion of that time.

  • High school students are welcome to help, too.

To sign up to help with kids and families:
