Kaye, AMST docent, gives a tour to a school group


Docents provide guided tours in the Museum for both children and adults. We welcome and appreciate the volunteer services of our docents and continually seek to build our docent base.

It is not necessary to have an academic background in art, history, or public speaking to join our program, but these skills are welcomed. Training is conducted quarterly by curatorial staff and guest artists/curators. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please fill out our DOCENT APPLICATION here.

The AMST docents meet as a group prior to each exhibit cycle to learn about upcoming exhibits from Museum curators and artists. During the school year, docents provide tours to school classes and special adult groups. In addition, the group celebrates with an end-of-the-year luncheon at which the "Docent of the Year" is named.
