O'Keefe quoteWithout volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to reach as many people in our community experiencing difficulty.   Join the cause and support emotional healing through art & creative expression today!

Volunteer Orientations

Orientations for volunteers are offered several times a year at our Laguna Hills studio. We give you a brief history and overview of Art for Creativity and Healing, our mission, and who in the community we serve.  You’ll learn about  the different volunteer opportunities you can join in on. You will also experience the Art4Healing® method firsthand by participating in a mini workshop. Please wear clothing appropriate for painting—no art experience necessary!
