Docent Program

Newfields docents are trained volunteer educators interested in leading groups of visitors through the Newfields' permanent collection and featured exhibitions. Docents lead visitors of all ages on tours designed to expand the visitors’ experience with an appreciation for art.

Additional opportunities for docents include serving as outreach ambassadors to inform the community about the Newfields collection, taking art projects to local children’s hospitals, participating in special events such as Martin Luther King Day, facilitating public programs, and engaging in continuing education training specifically for docents.


At this time, Newfields is not holding training for a new docent class. Please check back periodically for updates on recruitment.
