Docents

Thousands of people are offered informative and educational tours through the Everson Museum's galleries each year - thanks to a group of dedicated volunteers called "docents". Everson Museum Docents welcome visitors, conduct museum tours for school groups, clubs and organizations, and present outreach programs. Docent led tours and programs can be customized for a particular curricular focus or age group, and are also available in French and Spanish.

While just a few of our docents have a degree in art, they all appreciate art, learning and teaching, and are energized by the enthusiasm of students and adults responding to works of art in the museum.

Docent education begins in September with continuous education two Monday afternoons per month through May. Candidates also participate in an intensive three-day workshop held in November. Upon graduation, docents continue to meet two Mondays per month and volunteer at least one day a week. This may include mornings, afternoons, evenings or weekends.

Contact Kimberly Griffiths at (315) 474 6064 x310 for more information on how to become an Everson docent.
