Set Builders

Once it is built, it is time to add detail and color to the set. Set painters of various talent and experience levels can contribute to this fun and satisfying task. Novices can apply basic “base coats” of paint while more accomplished artists can follow behind add the detail (color, texture, shadow and highlight). Bring the set to vibrant life by volunteering as a set painter!
(Minimum hours per week: 4)

To volunteer at The Center or with any of our partner groups, please contact The Center’s Volunteer Coordinator, Marcie Allen at mallen@bcfas.org or 979-265-7661.

You can also use the Volunteer Interest tab to submit your interest online.

Attendants also learn about the current and upcoming exhibits and events to provide visitor information and to be able to answer basic questions about the exhibits, Brazosport Museum of Natural Science and The Center for the Arts & Sciences. The attendant is also responsible for gift shop sales transactions and must be confident with cash handling and credit card processing. The attendant also helps ensure the safety of guests and the preservation of the exhibits and artifacts on display.

Set Builders

During the time a Center Stages play is in production, set builders work on Saturdays (usually 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM) and, occasionally, during some weekdays, as volunteer availability allows. Volunteers should have a background in safe construction practices, including using various types of power tools. Though not necessary, set construction volunteers are encouraged to bring and use their own well-maintained and safe power tools. Wood is usually the most typical construction material, though occasionally other materials, such as metal, are used.
