How do docents learn all about the museum? That is a question we often field!
First, docents take an in-depth course in art history and The DAI collection, interpretive strategies and learning styles. Programs related to each special exhibition include lectures, which volunteers who work regular weekly schedules at the museum are invited to attend as well. If you are interested in experiencing some of the different types of training our docents receive, join us for a special series this fall that we are opening to the public for the first time. Maybe it will be so interesting, you will decide to pursue docent training in the future!
