Docent Training

Event Details
Presented by

We invite you to join us for coffee and light refreshments at our fall docent training session.  The interactive training session will include:

  • a brief introduction to the goals of the program
  • tour of our current exhibition: Michigan Now: Annual Juried Fine Art Exhibition
  • a studio session introducing the “hands-on” project for student groups
  • informal conversations about engaging both children and adults in gallery tours
  • a sign-up for specific student or adult tour dates

The training is intended to provide you with the information, strategies, and structure that you need to lead successful docent tours.  At the same time, you are invited to bring your own interests, stories, and experience to your tours. 

Our next Coffee @ Ten lecture will be held on Tuesday, October 8,  with exhibition juror, Juana Williams.  We encourage you to attend this and our other Coffee @ Ten lectures for added enrichment.

Docent tours are a vital part of our educational program.  Tours - offered at no charge -  bring in children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience art, and adults seeking lifelong cultural engagement.  We value your participation in this program, and hope to see you on September 23.  

If you are interested, but are unable to attend the training, contact Megan DeWindt, Program Director, at, or at 231.347.1236 for alternative training arrangements.
