2018 oakland academy docent w kids 1x1 72

Seeking a new volunteer adventure? Join us to learn about the docent training beginning in January.

If you're interested in learning about art, enjoy connecting with your community, and like to spend time with fun, dynamic people, you might make a great docent!

Docents are trained to help visitors of all ages find a deeper understanding and appreciation of art via our exhibitions. You need no prior knowledge of art -- just a willingness to learn, the enthusiasm to share your love of learning, comfort with public speaking, and a flexible schedule.

Each new class meets for nine months on selected Mondays. Candidates will learn art processes, art history, touring and engagement techniques. Docents sign up to lead 1-2 tours a month, for a total of 18 per year. (Our next docent class will not come along until 2021).
