Community Docents

The Georgia Museum of Art's docent corps is a specially trained group of volunteers who lead conversation-based tours of the museum's permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. Through these tours, docents help museum visitors feel welcome and comfortable, enhance their educational experience and facilitate relevant connections with works of art. No experience in education or art is necessary, and all training is provided. This program requires a 2-year commitment, 12 tours per a year and continuing education attendance on select Monday mornings.

The next community docent education session will start in August. Email Sage Kincaid at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) for more information or call 706.542.0448.
