HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER?
Denver Art Society is an artist community co-op that is 100% run by volunteers.
There are 4 Steps to complete before you can join our gallery as an artist:
1) New Member Orientation
2) Attend a Coop Meeting
3) Volunteer 6 hours a month, for 2 months (12 hours total)**
4) We also ask that members give a $25/month donation to Denver Art Society if they are able.
New Member Orientation
This happens in person at the gallery and takes about 1 hour. Email email@example.com to find out when the next orientation is.
Our Coop Meeting happens monthly on the Wednesday before First Friday at 7pm.
Members must attend a minimum of 1 meeting every 3 months.
After you complete New Member Orientation and attend a Coop Meeting, you will need to volunteer 6 hours a month, for 2 months (12 hours total). (**Note: Our "month" begins the Wednesday BEFORE third Friday).
For those that are able, we ask for a $25/month donation to help us fund our gallery. The donation is tax deductible: Donate to Denver Art Society
