The Georgia Museum of Art has a wide variety of volunteer opportunities for patrons of any age. Our volunteers are important contributors to the success of the museum. They work in the Museum Shop, the library, as docents, during special events and during educational events. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the appropriate department.

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.

Community docent education sessions start in August. Email Sage Kincaid at sagekincaid@uga.edu for more information or call 706.542.0448.
