Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved in what Ptarmigan Arts is doing, whether as a participant, facilitator, or a donor. We are always looking for creative ways to engage our community in the arts and welcome your ideas and inspiration. Because all of our programming aims at making the arts accessible to the community, we strive to offer programs at a lower cost than what they might normally be. Your support as a member or monthly patron helps us continue to offer workshops and events that engage the community, provide healing and wellness, and inspire the youth. Thank you for being a part of what we’re doing!
