Get Involved!Capital Arts has a variety of ways to volunteer, to help share the wonders of art with all ages in the community.
ART IN A SUITCASE
Volunteers bring the fascinating lives and works of six renown arts – Picasso, Claude Monet, Thomas Hart Benton, and contemporary Faith Ringgold into every fourth grade classroom in Jefferson City. These one-hour programs, each packed in an easy to carry suitcase/portfolio, are scheduled by an AIS coordinator who matches volunteers’ calendars s with those of fourth grade art classes. After a provided, scripted program on an artist, the children unleash their own talent on a theme suggested by the volunteer. Results: Amazing! Students really absorb what they learn from “Artists” in a Suitcase.

CAPITAL STREET ART FAIR
Partnering with performing arts is an important aspect of Capital Arts’ mission. Every fall, Capital Arts unites with JazzFest in beautiful downtown Jefferson City. On the first day, the streets will explode with brilliant colored chalk imaginative creations by students from across the area.
Second day visitors not only oohhh and ahhh over Friday’s student art, but they also experience live jazz while watching amateur and professional artists (all ages) chalk it up for top honors and prizes. In addition, artist tents full of wares are dispersed throughout the park.
In the evening, art and Jazz fans converge to share their love of music and exceptional art. Volunteers are needed both days to assist artists.
