The docent volunteer program is a year-long program that prepares docents to lead tours for students; including experiences in the galleries, studios, and ARTWORKS. Docents also lead adult tours, off-site presentations, puppet shows, and public programs.
Teaching credentials or artistic backgrounds are not required. The Museum will supply the necessary training to lead dynamic learning experiences for all ages effectively. The docent program is also supplemented by a website that offers information about the program and the Museum’s collection and special exhibitions.
Prospective Docents are:
- Enthusiastic, flexible, and friendly
- Eager to learn about art and engage others in discussions about art
- Ready to be the Museum’s ambassador to the public
