Everyone interested is encouraged to apply. Successful docents have a passion for the Museum and enjoy sharing that with people of all backgrounds. Prior teaching experience and knowledge of art history is helpful but not required. Applicants should be comfortable with public speaking and available to lead at least one tour a week.
The Museum provides engaging training with written materials, discussion, and shadowing current docents and staff as they lead tours. Training can take about two months to successfully prepare to serve as a docent, and we ask that docents make a two-year commitment after completing their training.
While the majority of our volunteer needs are for Museum docents to lead tours of the Studio, we also have opportunities for volunteers interested in gardening and landscaping, and assisting with other Museum activities.
Please email this completed application and your resume, if you are providing one, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
