Docent Training – Dar al Athar al Islamiyyah


Be Part of Art;
Be a DAI Docent

What is a Docent?

A docent is a volunteer who teaches visitors about art in the museum’s
galleries. Docents create meaningful experiences with museum visitors
as they explore the world through works of art. They inspire and
nurture discovery by encouraging visitors to look more deeply into
artworks, and they help to enrich the lives of others by connecting
people to art and the museum.

Who can be a Docent?

Anyone with an interest in art and, more important, a willingness to
share that interest with others.  Of course, there is training
involved and we do ask that all our docents volunteer at least three
hours per month at the Amricani Cultural Center
