Do you love learning and sharing? Are you intrigued by the art, history, and cultures that make up the American West? If this sounds like something you'd enjoy, we encourage you to become a Briscoe Western Art Museum docent. But what does that mean?
Docents help facilitate tours for kids and adults alike, and they play a fundamental role in making the Museum’s education mission a reality. Docent training covers a wide range of topics including art history, gallery teaching strategies, and art presentation methods. Currently our docents are meeting virtually to discuss methods for creating digital resources for the museum's patrons and school groups who cannot come to the museum for field trips this year.
Located on the Riverwalk, right in the heart of Downtown San Antonio, our museum is a must-see, and we can't wait for you to join in the fun!
