Let's Look at Art Docents

Created soon after the founding of the Museum in 1969, Let's Look at Art is an award-winning SJMA program that sends docents into Bay Area classrooms. Designed to teach children the joy of art while developing their observation, interpretation, and communication skills, this interactive program reached over 25,000 students last year. For 50 percent of these young people, Let's Look at Art was their first exposure to the visual arts.

No art experience is required, and docents enjoy opportunities for personal enrichment through informative lectures and day trips to other museums.

For information about volunteering for the Let’s Look at Art program, please send email to vol4llaa@sjmusart.org or call 408.291.5393.

Next training begins January 2020.
