San Jose Museum of Art is looking for volunteers 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 provide free presentations to students in their classrooms. The Museum asks for a commitment of 15-20 classroom hours per 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.
Annual Let's Look at Art training begins in January and meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays for seven weeks.
For information about volunteering for the Let’s Look at Art program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit: sjmusart.org/lets-look-art-docents
