HMA seeking people interested in being docents

Aug. 29, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The Huntington Museum of Art will have a Docent Open House from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3.

Anyone interested in volunteering to be a docent is invited. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served.

A docent is someone who volunteers time to lead schoolchildren and museum visitors on guided tours. No prior experience or background in art is required. If you like art of any kind, if you enjoy sharing your knowledge, and if you can spend 90 minutes a week getting free instruction about art, this could be the program for you.

Docents work with HMA's Education Department and receive training on HMA exhibits on Monday mornings.

Those interested in attending the informational Docent Open House and learning more about the HMA docent program should call Cindy Dearborn in HMA's Education Department at 3040529-2701; or send an email to cdearborn@hmoa.org.
