Our Volunteers

From teaching a class, to serving on a committee or the Board of Directors, helping with marketing efforts, obtaining sponsorships or setting up events, the Clinton Art Society relies on a robust group of dedicated volunteers and we are so grateful for them! We would not exist without their help.

We are so grateful for the support of local businesses whose financial support enables us to bring creative opportunities, guest artists for demonstrations, jurors and other art related events to our members and the local community.  We welcome new businesses who share our belief that the arts enrich our community in so many ways and wish to be recognized as contributing to this effort.

The Clinton Art Society has many artist members with websites where you can find more of their work and contact information.
