Volunteerism is Enriching and Educational
Volunteers serve as the backbone of our organization. In addition to helping advance the mission of the Dixie Art Colony Foundation, volunteers gain access to special volunteer-only lectures, programs, and behind-the-scenes activities. Volunteers meet interesting people, make new friends, contribute to the education of children, and become an integral part of the arts community.
Below are additional details regarding specific opportunities. Should you have any questions email us at: info@DixieArtColony.org

DAC Foundation Award
The first annual Youth Award will be selected from entries in the Elmore County Art Guild's Sparking the Arts program which will take place in May of 2017. The recipient will be presented with an award and a cash incentive prize.
About Our Programs
The majority of our programs are designed to offer small groups of individuals an up-close and personal opportunity to learn more about the visual arts in a casual setting. While some of our programs will venture outside the south, most will focus on the Southern Region, particularly Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, and Mississippi.
There will be a small fee to attend some of our programs while others such as Lunch & Learn are entirely free of charge, open to the general public, and do not require reservations. Our more in-depth four-session programs do require reservations and a small fee is charged. Volunteers will receive a discount.
