For Fall 2018, VisArts is seeking docents to lead tours and have casual conversations about contemporary art in our galleries. VisArts is a non-profit organization, in Rockville, MD, with four art galleries and additional art spaces dedicated to rotating exhibitions for contemporary artists. Docents will gain skills in public speaking, audience engagement, and researching contemporary art. In addition, docents will be trained and have the opportunity to apply museum and art education strategies to facilitate in-gallery learning. Other benefits include opportunities to earn credit toward art classes at VisArts, meet gallery staff, and gain behind-the-scenes access to the galleries. This is a volunteer position.

Applicants must complete an application form and submit a resume, cover letter, and contact information for two references.
