The Silver Spring Art Studio is a space that welcomes all individuals with developmental disabilities to come and express themselves through creating many types of art. As a volunteer, you will be there to support the individuals to express themselves through their art projects. The classes range from painting to pottery, cooking classes and so much more!
The volunteer will have the opportunity to bring their own experiences to the studio to teach classes, assist with the classes and support the program. Experience in teaching art classes or an interest in creative arts is an asset, but not a requirement.
The studio is open Monday to Friday from 9-3pm and we are looking for volunteers who are available during these hours. There is no time commitment required, you come when you are available.
The Mission of the Studio:
In a peaceful, welcoming environment, the Silver Spring Studio is dedicated to cultivating a vibrant and inclusive community of artists, where creativity knows no bounds. Our mission is to provide a tranquil and empowering space for individuals of all backgrounds, abilities, and perspectives to creatively express themselves while valuing fun and fostering relationships.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
The volunteer will benefit from the opportunity to engage with incredible individuals who attend the program. The opportunity to interact and learn with the participants in a warm and welcoming environment will be an enriching experience.
How will the organization benefit?
Each volunteer makes a difference in the lives of the individuals supported by OCAPDD. Volunteers make it possible for us to provide enhanced opportunities for our individuals and provides us with new perspectives and incites. OCAPDD is a not for profit organization that supports individuals with developmental disabilities. As an organization, the individuals that we support would benefit from participating in a creative atmosphere and learning new skills and experiencing the vibrancy that the arts community has to offer.
