Heroes of the Week: Artists Working in Education Volunteers
“The diverse group of artists that AWE works with continually amazes me,” says Beth Haskovec, AWE’s executive director. “The board is a group of passionate individuals who all care deeply for the arts and its role in education and youth development, and the staff is an excellent team that works hard each day and knows that what we are doing isn’t just about putting a paint brush in a child’s hand—it’s developing children who are confident, creative and able to problem solve.”
AWE is looking for volunteers to assist their artists at Truck Studio Library programs (email email@example.com), board members for 2014 (email firstname.lastname@example.org) and experienced graphic design professionals willing to donate their services (email email@example.com). In addition, AWE’s wish list includes oil pastels; sketch books; acrylic, tempera and watercolor paints and brushes; Ace Hardware, Michaels or Utrecht gift cards; and glue bottles and sticks.
