Become A Volunteer

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Studios.

We would love for you to join us! We are looking for individuals who are interested in helping Studios on the Park be successful. 

This is a very exciting time for us! Our organization is small but mighty and we’re looking for people who want to participate first-hand in the advancement of our mission. We can utilize any and all skills you may have to offer. Assist with our Kids Art Smart program. Work from home making press kits or thank you letters. Lead a tour of the building. Greet the public at Art After Dark Paso. We will do our best to match your skills, interests and availability with our needs.

We are looking for volunteers to help in each of these areas:

Administrative Support

Docenting & Store Sales

Exhibition Preparation & Installation


Kids Art Smart

Marketing/PR Outreach

Special Events

Wine Stewards

Volunteers are asked to attend a training and orientation session to learn more about the organization’s goals and needs, meet some of the Studios on the Park team, gain some specific communication skills and get answers to any questions you may have. At the training/orientation and immediately afterwards, we will help you identify the most effective volunteer role for you within one of the teams listed above. All activities, whether highly visible or completely behind-the-scenes, have a direct impact on the quality of experience Studios on the Park offers to the public.

Your contribution of time and resources is critical in helping us accomplish our mission and vision. You help to make the visual arts available to our community, build a strong foundation for Studios on the Park and expand our programs.
