Docent Program

Parrish Docents are volunteer educators who serve the Museum and its community by bringing art to life for hundreds of visitors each  year. After several months of training, Docents lead public and group tours for adults, give family tours, work with school children, make presentations in the community, and participate in continuing learning experiences.

The docent program requires a three-year commitment, beginning with a six-month period of training and shadowing. The training period is followed by two and half years as an active Docent. Please contact Casey Meyer at for more information.
