TRAINING PROGRAM
Our 2014-15 training program will begin on September 15, 2014 and end on May 18, 2015. Half-day classes are on Mondays and will conclude with a graduation lunch on June 1, 2015. For more information on schedule and curriculum, please review sections: Class Schedule, Learning Objectives, and Class Requirements.

CRITERIA AND COMMITMENTS
We are looking for candidates who have good communication skills, enjoy working with people of all ages, and have an enthusiasm for art, craft, and design. Since we usually communicate through e-mail and docents- in training will do research on the docent extranet, it is necessary to have an e-mail address and access to a computer. Following graduation, docents are asked to serve for a minimum of two years, working at least 16 two-hour time slots per year performing gallery duty and leading tours.
