Docent Recruitment Reception

If you have a passion for art and are interested in serving the community, the SBMA Docent Program is a rewarding and supportive environment to learn and have fun.

Volunteer docents engage with visitors of all ages through guided tours to make works of art accessible to everyone. An art background is not required. Diverse applicants with an interest in learning about art, working with students, and facilitating positive Museum experiences for visitors are encouraged to apply. In addition to touring, docents enjoy an extensive program of continuing education provided by curators and local experts. The year-long training course begins each September.

If interested, plan to attend a Recruitment Reception on Thursday, May 18, 3 to 5 pm at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.
