The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts is seeking enthusiastic lovers of the arts
to volunteer their time and talent to become part of our team.
Who Can Volunteer?
We are looking for people who are enthusiastic, responsible and ready to commit to a regular schedule. If you are a college student, retiree or you just want to spend some time in our beautiful center, we’d love to have you.*
Front Desk Volunteers
These volunteers are a vital part of the Nigra Arts Center. Handling duties from answering questions to signing in visitors/students, processing admission fees and selling memberships and gift shop items, all front desk volunteers are expected to help us create an inviting and engaging environment for our guests. These volunteers must commit to at least one 2- to 4-hour shift on a regular basis during our operating hours.
If you are well organized and have a great attention for detail, we need your help with filing, mailings and many behind-the-scenes projects. We request your availability to work a minimum of one 2- to 4-hour shift on a regular basis during our operating hours.
Artist/Chef Assistant Volunteers
Talented, friendly volunteers are needed to assist our instructors in our art studios and teaching kitchen. You will assist instructors with organizing materials, tools, hand-outs and/or ingredients. Most classes last 2 hours, but volunteers are required to arrive at least 30 minutes early to prepare for class.
Special Event Volunteers
Help the Nigra Arts Center host some of the most entertaining events in the area! We host a number of affairs year-round for the community, including our annual Open House, family events, art shows, concerts, fundraisers, corporate retreats and conferences. We need outgoing, friendly and dependable volunteers. Most shifts are 4-5 hours long and a lot of fun.
