BECOME A DOCENT OR VOLUNTEER
DOCENT / VOLUNTEER COUNCIL
The University Art Museum Docent / Volunteer Council provides key support to the Museum and its education programs. The Council reinforces the Museum’s commitment to providing all visitors—students, seniors, adults, and children—regardless of how much previous exposure to art they have had, with a positive experience and an opportunity to engage with contemporary art on a variety of levels. All docents and volunteers attend the Docent / Volunteer Council class, held most Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The class, led by Curator of Education Brian Trimble, is a dynamic learning environment where docents and volunteers study presentation skills and art history as well as art education and contemporary art theory. In addition, docents visit regional museums, galleries, and art centers.
University Art Museum docents provide meaningful tours for CSULB students, K-12 school classes, and community groups interested in visiting the UAM.
BECOMING A DOCENT
The University Art Museum’s Docent / Volunteer Council is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers who want to learn more about contemporary art. If you have an interest in art, a love of learning, and are willing to share what you learn with children and adults who visit the Museum, then this is the place for you. A formal background in visual art is not required.
