Volunteers must have some availability for tours during school hours and attend a two-hour training session every second Monday during the school year. Experience with children and some knowledge of art is desired, but comprehensive training will be provided.

Volunteers assist instructors with WAG Studio programs for children. Classes are held on Saturdays and tasks include setting up classrooms and materials, helping and supervising students, replenishing supplies, and assisting with cleanup.
