PAINTS and CHIME have merged to form Piedmont Arts Fund (PAF) with a focus of supporting both visual arts and performing arts in our schools. The Piedmont Arts Fund provides critical parent support for the arts and showcases community events throughout the year.

Volunteer Opportunities

Would you like to volunteer for the Piedmont Arts Fund? We have some suggested ideas of how volunteers can pitch in. No artistic talent is required, but art appreciation is admired. Here are some ways that you could get involved.

  • Join the Committee and come to a monthly Committee meeting so we can meet you

  • Take photographs of the art at the schools and post to Instagram @piedmontartsfund

  • Connect community artists to the Big Art Show Call for Art

  • Sponsor an event, or help us find sponsors.

  • Help the Piedmont High School Art Frames find a home (and find out the long amazing back story)

  • Organize the Kids Art Show. Collect kids art and frame it for the Big Art Show.

  • Host a small art party! Some past events have included acrylic painting, graffiti art, fused glass workshop, comic book workshop, and screen printing. Do you have an project you would like to offer the community. This can also include music master classes.
