The Dixon is now accepting applications for our 2014 volunteer docent program. A successful candidate should have an interest in art, a friendly personality, good communication skills, and a desire to help others learn. An art background is not required. Docent training will cover art history, education and interpretation techniques, and tour leading practice. Sessions begin in February and continue through June. Docents are required to commit to two years and attend all training sessions to stay up to date on current exhibitions and museum events.
