Docent Training Program

September 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am - October 24, 2023 @ 11:30 am

2023-2024 Season

Are you an art lover, history buff, public speaker, or people-person? If you answered yes, then we invite you to apply for our upcoming Docent Training Program. When you train to become a docent, you’ll enjoy a mini-art history course with our Associate Curator of Education, Martha Underriner, who has an MA in Art Education and an MFA in Studio Art. The training program will be 8-week consecutive class, meeting Tuesdays from 10 – 11:30 a.m. starting on September 12 and running through October 31.

Docents are a vital link between what’s displayed in the Museum and how visitors respond to what they see. Our docents are a diverse group of volunteers who share a passion for art and the community. They are active, enthusiastic, imaginative, and knowledgeable. Historically, a docent was a tour guide who talked while visitors listened. Today, docents do so much more than just talk.  Our docents help visitors of all ages discover the world of art by creating inquiry-based field studies and tours centered on the art.


To qualify as a docent you should have:

      • An abiding interest in the visual arts
      • Good public speaking skills
      • Ability to work well with children and adults
      • Flexibility, dependability, time, and commitment
