Docent Training: Information Sessions
The docents play a critical role at the MFA. They engage visitors as tour guides and educators in the galleries and the community. Docents introduce many children and even some adults to art and museums for the very first time.
The docent-training program begins on Friday, October 14, and lasts 11 months. No prior art history knowledge is expected or required. Attendance is mandatory, but there will be opportunities to make up missed classwork.
The course is only open to those who wish to become MFA docents. Classes will be held on Friday mornings, but accommodation can be made for those with prior commitments that day. All potential docents must be Museum members.
