Volunteering Opportunities


The Traditional Fine Arts Organization (TFAO) website is the world's largest and most visited site devoted to American representational art. Its contents were created largely through generous gifts of time and talent on the part of hundreds of individuals from all walks of life. In keeping with its principle of free service to all, TFAO has been operated by volunteers from its inception. TFAO has no employees.

TFAO welcomes volunteers to further the broadening of knowledge of American representational art. Individuals who are:

- between jobs
- employed in the home
- high schools or college students
- retired

or have free time after work hours are all welcome.

Volunteering is suited for individuals who enjoy American art, library science, art history and research projects. Volunteers choose their own hours and work independently from the location of their choice.

We are proud to acknowledge our volunteers' efforts throughout our website.
