Docentitos is the Weston Art Gallery’s acclaimed art ambassadorial program for young people ages 9-12 years.
Docentitos Academy is Back in 2022!
The Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts announces the twenty-fourth season of its award-winning art ambassadorial program, Docentitos. The two-week summer camp from June 4-17 trains youths ages 9-12 to be gallery docents. Docentitos experience the important role of being a volunteer, gain knowledge of visual art terminology, go on art-related field trips, and ultimately, use all they’ve learned to tour exhibition visitors. Daily activities include classes, artist talks, theater tours, workshops, installation and studio visits, and an art project.
EXTENDED! Application Deadline is now April 1, 2022
