Docent Training

January 22, 2018 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
CTAC Galleries - Petoskey


We invite you to join us for coffee and light refreshments at a special docent training session, on Monday, January 22, from 1-3 pm.   The interactive training session will include:

  • a brief introduction to the goals of the program

  • tour of the 2018 Juried Photography & Hand in Hand: Craft & New Technologies exhibits

  • a studio session introducing the “hands on” project for student groups

  • informal conversations about engaging both children and adult in gallery tours

The training is intended to provide you with the information, strategies and and structure that you need to lead successful docent tours.  At the same time, you are invited to bring your own interests, stories, and experience to your tours.

You will have the opportunity to sign up for specific dates for student or adult tours.  You are also invited to attend if you aren’t sure or ready to volunteer for tours.  

Docent tours are a vital part of our educational program.  Tours, offered at no charge, bring in children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience art, and adults seeking lifelong cultural engagement.  

We value your participation in this program, and hope to see you on Monday.  If you are interested in attending, but are unable to attend the training, contact Megan DeWindt, Program Director, or 231.347.1236 for alternative training arrangements.
