Docents bring art education to school children, museum visitors, and the local community through many different programs.
The Docent training program spans a nine month training period (October – May) and focuses on three main areas: a knowledge of the collections and historic properties; a cultivation of touring skills; and an understanding of art history including major periods and important artists. Classes meet every Thursday from 10:00 am – 3:30 pm. Cost: $200 per person to cover costs of textbooks and other printed materials.
Prospective docents must be Museum members.
