A Community of Learners: The Hood Docents

Posted on March 01, 2003 by Kristin Swan

Hood Quarterly, spring 2003

Docents, or volunteer educators, introduce thousands of visitors to the Hood's exhibitions and collections each year. After learning about the art on view, docents share their knowledge and enthusiasm by leading tours for school and community groups, teaching Saturday morning ArtVentures for children, and helping to staff Family Days.

For your next visit to the museum, why not consider a docent-led tour? Or become a docent yourself—the Hood is currently recruiting community members! Contact the education department for more information about the docent program.
