Get Artsy with the Valley Art Association

Just this month we experienced the Sidewalk Chalk Festival, where the community of Forest Grove became a canvas for amazing art. The Valley Art Association was only able to make this happen through the time and effort of their volunteers, and while the festival is over, the need for volunteers is not.

The life blood of our organization is the volunteers. There is always a need for more help from sitters, mailers, educators, cleaners, stockers. You get the idea. Just call and we will find a job for you. A couple of hours a week or month is all it takes. This is our community’s effort to make art available for everyone.”

Right now they are looking for art-interested, reliable and friendly individuals who can serve as sitters and salespeople. Tasks would include sitting at the front desk, working the cash register, and after a sale is complete to wrap up the artwork and box it up. Being knowledgeable about the artists represented in the gallery is highly recommended. These shifts can be for 3 or so hours.

Another annual event is the Elf Workshop, which happens on December 6 this year. It’s held in the Valley Art classroom space and is for kids, so students studying childhood education would be best.
