Carolyn Rondthaler among Smithsonian volunteers featured in online art show

This week the Smithsonian’s online newsletter, the Torch, published works by volunteers in the Smithsonian’s Studio Arts program. The Studio Arts program offers more than 50 classes, from painting and sculpture to quilting and children’s book illustration.

The Torch virtual exhibit includes some really beautiful art, including these two watercolors by Wednesday Studio member Carolyn Rondthaler:

Carolyn Rondthaler: Koi. Watercolor.
Carolyn Rondthaler: Blue Violin. Watercolor.

Carolyn has been a volunteer for the Smithsonian Associates Studio Arts program for a couple years.

As a volunteer, Carolyn sets up the classroom, distributes materials to students, and assists the instructor as needed. Not all Studio Arts volunteers are artists, but they are invited to participate in the class if they wish. Carolyn says she has volunteered in about 10 classes and finds being able to participate one of the most enjoyable aspects.

“What I really love about being a Smithsonian volunteer is that they treat the volunteers like staff.  We get a badge, don’t have to have or bags checked to get into an exhibit, get a 20% discount in the stores, and the badge is also honored at the National Gallery of Art,” Carolyn says.
