Volunteer for Magic of Children in the Arts 23rd Annual 2017!


Magic of Children in the Arts


Helping out for a few hours to prep for the art show is fun and rewarding. We make it easy and the time commitment is small. We are anticipating 1000 entries this year and need some help! If you can spare a few hours, we would be so grateful. This is Canada’s 150th birthday, so the kids will be doing lots of art all about Canada.
