From our friends at the Davison Art Center:

Introduce 4th-grade students to the world of the arts!
The Friends of the Davison Art Center (FDAC) are looking for volunteer docents or tour guides for their school tours program this Fall. Docents introduce over 400 Middletown fourth graders to art, music, and architecture through annual tours of Wesleyan arts, including the Zilkha GalleryMansfield Freeman Gallery, and Gamelan orchestra.  Docents will lead tours, assist in creating lesson plans, meet with curators, and stimulate connections and a dialogue about the works of art. Tours run the dates of October 6-8, 13-15, and 21-22 from 9:15am-12:30pm. All docents will be required to attend the training session and commit to one (or more!) shifts. The FDAC has a history of over 40 years of engaging with Middletown’s students and we couldn’t do it without the tremendous support of our volunteers.
