How to Look: Volunteer Docent Program begins Sept. 8 at Weatherspoon

Posted on Tuesday, August 5th, 2014 by CommunityEngagement.

Weatherspoon docents do not memorize scripts or give lectures. Instead, they guide visitors in learning “how to look” by demonstrating skills anyone can use to observe and interpret works of modern and contemporary art. Through their volunteer efforts, docents help provide free, guided experiences to nearly 4,500 school age children, university students, and adult learners annually. Docents are accepted into the museum’s training program every other year and no prior art experience is required. The next program begins September 8, 2014. Applications may be found at http://weatherspoon.uncg.edu/learn/volunteer.
