Bedford Gallery docents lead tours of gallery exhibitions for groups of children and adults. Docents receive special training in art history and effective touring techniques. Through exciting interactive tours and participatory discussions, docents provide an invaluable service to the Bay Area community. Docents provide students with the art education that many schools can no longer offer. Children's tours include a hands-on workshop. Tours are by appointment and most are scheduled for weekday mornings.
