Thank you for your interest in being part of our volunteer community! Volunteers serve a key role in the life of the Grand Marais Art Colony. In a given week, volunteers care for our grounds, sort recycling, welcome visitors in our Gallery Store, provide needed administrative assistance, and support classroom set-up. Art Colony volunteers help make beloved events such as the Grand Marais Arts Festival and the North Shore Readers and Writers Festival possible through packet stuffing, set-up, and offering hospitality to participants and visitors alike. Volunteers are integral to our mission and what we are able to offer. Come join us!

Work Study

The Art Colony Work Study Program allows students with interests in supporting the arts, arts administration, events, and teaching, to consider taking on a more pivotal role within the Art Colony’s daily operations while earning class tuition credit. While work-study positions are open to anyone, we particularly encourage those potential and current students who have financial need to consider this option.
