A docent is a trained museum guide. The KAC has a variety of tours that require docents, including outdoor walking tours, gallery tours, and special event tours. Docents must be knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and comfortable working with diverse groups of children and adults. The KAC education department provides weekly 1.5 hour training sessions that cover art history, cultural sensitivity, public speaking and teaching strategies. Occasional field trips and artist lectures are also included in the training. All volunteer docents must pass a practice tour with the education manager before working with the public.
Training sessions are held on Wednesday afternoons from 12-1:30 pm. We ask that docents are available for at least 9 out of 12 months of the year and attend 3 out of 4 trainings per month.
Tours are typically scheduled between 9 am and 5 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Occasional weekend and evening tours.
Most museum docent programs are led by volunteers with a passion for teaching and learning about art. Docents benefit from a free and intensive education in the arts and the opportunity to share that education with others, including underserved school children. In addition, volunteer docents enjoy KAC membership, invitations to special events, and one free KAC class per session.
