“LET THE ARTS INSPIRE YOU!”

If you have a passion for the arts at Providence Day School and want to show your support for our incredibly talented students and faculty, we invite you to join Friends of the Arts!

This emerging Parents’ Association group provides volunteer support to the Performing and Visual Arts departments. Everyone is welcome to join -- including parents, faculty, alumni and grandparents! There is no membership fee.

Here are some ways you can help:

PERFORMING ARTS

Music - Choral, Strings and Band. Welcome guests and hand out programs as a Friends of the Arts usher during the Winter and Spring concerts for 5th grade, Middle and Upper School.

Theater - Be part of the Friends of the Arts behind-the-scenes crew! Volunteers sell concessions,  distribute tickets, serve as ushers, decorate the lobby, offer production photographs for purchase,  sell production T-shirts, coordinate production parties, and much more!
