A Docent is a volunteer museum guide who engages visitors in discussions about art. Our community of trained docents welcomes thousands of visitors annually, leading tours for people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.
The Norton has an extraordinary permanent collection, a beautiful sculpture garden, and features fantastic special exhibitions, all of which are available to tour.
We are looking for diverse individuals who live in the area year-round. A formal art background is not necessary— the Museum will provide thorough training.
Our next Docent Class is set to begin in October of 2024. We will be seeking applicants in the Spring of 2024, so keep an eye out if you are interested! Please keep in mind that the training program lasts for 18 months and requires a certain time commitment.
