“In volunteering at the gallery, I have become a part of the community, no longer just a student passing through. I assist at family “Play with Clay” days and tons of class trips, from schools across the region. I have met distinguished artists and learned about the creativity that exists in 6 year olds—all while being part of a great group of volunteers that range in age from 17 to 72. This great group of people have not only shared their wisdom with me, but have given me the occasions to share mine with them.”
– Ruth O’Connell, University of Waterloo Art History student
