Art Studio Volunteer

Hummingbird Studio is a free, inclusive community art program open to artists of ALL ages and abilities. We were located in the heart of downtown Olympia until March 2020 when we had to suspend our physical program due to COVID-19.-

We are hosting a hummingbird studio on Zoom and we continue to need volunteers to help us sustain our mission of inclusion. If you love art and connecting with all different kinds of people, this opportunity is for you! It is a one-hour-a-week commitment and provides joy and connection for individuals who are isolated and lonely. We zoom every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 1-2 and we recently added a 2:30-3:30 shift on Tuesdays. We plan to add more sessions as interest dictates. Feel free to email with questions or interests.

Type of help: To help sustain the mission of social inclusion through arts
