Artist Volunteer Opportunity! Christmas Tree Decorating:

If you are interested in helping the children, please show up at the Town Hall ready to have creative fun. Time: 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM, Days: Monday through Friday, Dates: November 8 - 19 Tree lights and ornaments go up Jan 20th, Supplies: Please just bring yourself!! However, if you have the following....... hot glue gun and glue sticks, any old game pieces, lamp shades of various sizes, beads, yarn, or anything that you think would look great on a lampshade that will have to weather November, December and January. Be creative.

Artist Volunteer Opportunity! Harvest Basket for ROTARY CLUB:

The Rotary Club of Iydllwild is having our 44th Annual Harvest Festival, which is a fundraiser for our club. One of our "baskets" that visitors can buy tickets for is a Performing Arts and Artistic Development Basket. I am looking for artists who might be willing to donate a class for this basket. The artists who have already agreed to donate a class are going to arrange the time, place, etc with whoever wins the Artistic Development Basket. If anyone wants to donate a class, either I can make up a gift certificate for your approval, or you can make your own. All of the classes and the artists who are donating will be listed at the Harvest Festival. We think that in an artistic town such as Idyllwild, this should be a real hit. The artists can contact Dawn Miller directly, by e-mail or phone:

Artist Volunteer Opportunity! ARF Wreaths:

Idyllwild Artists, would you be be interested in decorating a wreath for ARF to benefit animal welfare? ARF will supply the wreaths. We are asking the artists of Idyllwild to each decorate a wreath in their own style and sign it. AAI will sell them through December to benefit ARF. The decorated wreath should be delivered to ARF on Saturday November 20th so they will be available for Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. AAI will sell them in their booth during the event. If you can't get your wreath to ARF by November 20th, simply bring them over as soon as you can, so that we can sell them at ARF, or raffle them off at the Post Office. The wreaths are 18" wide, & will come with juniper berries & pine cones already attached. For more information contact Maria Martino Lehman by emailing her at

We hope you will join us!
Sincerely, Art Alliance of Idyllwild
