Want to Volunteer And Learn About Art?

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery is now accepting applications for their docent training class beginning this coming September. Applicants are not required to have a background in art history or art. However, applicants will be required to be enthusiastic about art, have a passion for sharing and gaining knowledge, along with a two year commitment after the training is completed.
Training begins in September 2008 and will be every Thursday night from 6PM until 9PM. Classes will cover everything needed to succeed in the docent world at the Knox, including thorough coverage of the Permanent Collection and the necessary communicative skills for touring themes and techniques. Classes will consist of three short papers, four exams, and a graduation tour given to members of the Education department. Docents will be given a graduation celebration and will begin touring in the spring.
The Knox is one of the nation’s oldest public art organizations and to boot is also recognized nationally for their docent corps because of the intense training program. With the main focus of the Gallery on modern and contemporary art, docents will have an ever changing environment that will expand their intellectual and cultural horizons.
If becoming art smart, more social and more cultured tickles your fancy, then visit and fill out an application to become a docent for the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
