  • 23 people are interested

San Jose Museum of Art is inviting volunteer docents to apply for its Let’s Look at Art program.

Docents are given special training along with art education classes, to share with children throughout Santa Clara County. No previous art knowledge is required. The docent will then present fee presentations to students in their classrooms. The museum asks for a commitment of 15-20 classroom hours a year and your presence at quarterly meetings featuring local artists or guest speakers. As a bonus, you will have the opportunity to participate in field trips to other bay area museums.

This program reaches over 30,000 students each year for which for many it is their first exposure to art.

Training starts Jan. 2023. Meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays for seven weeks.
