Do you love art?
“Art is not about what you see, but what you make others see”
- Edward Degas
Docents have a very important and highly valued role at the Castellani Art Museum (CAM), inspiring visitors to discover and relate to art in thought-provoking ways.
What is a docent?
A docent is a well-trained volunteer who guides visitors through museum exhibitions. They are teachers, art enthusiasts, and a link between the public and the Museum. Docents prepare for and present tours to groups from schools and the community. They enrich the visitor's museum experience, engage their interest, and develop art appreciation in the audience.
The CAM asks its docents for a commitment of time, effort, enthusiasm, and a positive attitude. In return, we offer:
- The benefits of interacting with artists and museum staff
- Broadening your knowledge of art and art history
- A sense of achievement in working with the public
- Serving the public and community through education experiences
