The Northville Art House is currently seeking volunteers! Volunteering is a wonderful way to support the arts, meet new people and make a difference in our community. We welcome youth volunteers and those needing to satisfy their school requirements and National Honor Society hours. Whether you have an hour or two to help at an event, or just want to stuff envelopes, we welcome any interest level!
