Art Odyssey Arizona is passionate about connecting amazing volunteers with deserving schools. Through background checks, training and mentoring, we strategically place the best volunteers with your class.
Our programs equip your k-6 students with the art materials, supplies and volunteers to observe, analyze, discuss and interact with art. In addition to the art work your students get to experience talking in front of groups, boosting their critical thinking, and applying concepts by creating their own art.

Are your volunteers background checked?
All of our volunteers are screened, background checked, and finger-printed.
Are your programs during the school day or do you offer after or before school programs?
We offer our art explorations both during the school day and at before or after school programs.
Do classroom teachers need to prepare anything for the art explorations and/or help out with the class?
No preparation is required, and we bring everything we need. However, we do require that the teacher stay in the classroom during the presentation to address any discipline or other issues.
What is the cost of bringing Art Odyssey Arizona into my classroom?
We bring our program into your classroom free of charge. Furthermore, all materials and supplies are provided.

We have two sessions annually, one in the fall and one in the spring. Depending on volunteer availability, we would need to get you signed up at least one month prior to the start of the next session.
How many times per session do you come into the classroom?
We aim to get into the classroom four times each session.
