As a small nonprofit, we are always in need of volunteers!

Check out the page below to discover some of the ways you can get involved. If something is a good fit, or you're not sure where your enthusiasm would best land, email us at and we'll be happy to give you more information and get you set up. Please include your full name, your availability, and any other pertinent info. Working with children requires a background check and we will be in touch for further information if that's the case.

Art Expedition

Our new mobile art gallery goes all over the Waco & McLennan County area. Some visits are to schools for structured activities, others are to fun events like the Waco Cultural Arts Fest, the Waco Mammoth National Monument's Fall Fossil Festival, and more!

Community Events

We love to participate in community events, but with a small staff, we can’t do it all! We want your passion for our Waco community to be poured into our presence at community events.

As a community events volunteer, you would attend community events such as Waco Cultural Arts Fest, school fundraisers, etc. as a representative of The Art Center. You would run our booth and provide information to event attendees about our programs. This is an “as-needed” position, meaning you would be asked to volunteer as events come up.

Program Volunteer

Are you passionate about art and art education? If you are interested in serving your Waco community through helping The Art Center provide quality art education, consider becoming a programs volunteer.

As an art programs volunteer, you would be an assistant in a classroom during one of our programs. The Art Center requires a background check of any unaffiliated volunteer who works in our children’s programming.
