Summer Special Events: Help the art center with our summer special events such as our summer garage sale, Anoka County Fair booths and the Two Rivers Art Fair.

Class Assistant: Aid our teaching artists in the art classroom! Some of our classes with younger students, an abundance of students, or special materials, need extra hands. Volunteers must be at least 14 years old, ready for hands-on creating with kids, and have experience with art materials. Some classes are held at Rumriver Art Center and some are held off-site at parks or schools. Volunteer with us and get a taste of the art education life.

Gallery Assistant: Help folks attending our gallery spaces navigate the building and answer questions they may have regarding the artist.

Creative Tasks and Projects: If you like to make art or enjoy doing creative projects this is the volunteer opportunity for you! We are looking for folks who would like to help us enhance our spaces by assisting with some of our murals, creating and updating signage, updating and decorating chalkboards, helping complete example artworks for our classes and more.
