The Gallery at TCA is conducting a Docent Orientation and Boot Camp from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 9 at the Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA), 700 W. Rio Salado Parkway.
This volunteer program is geared toward individuals who enjoy art or art history and enjoy talking to people. No experience is necessary. The TCA docent training program features fun, interactive activities, such as art and architecture lectures, artist demonstrations and studio visits and practice sessions in local galleries, museums and public art sites.
During the one-day boot camp, participants will experience a behind the scenes tour of the TCA, learn about the history and construction of the center and do inquiry-based "talking about art" exercises in the gallery. Bring a brown bag lunch, comfortable shoes and a bottle of water.
The Gallery at TCA offers visitors a warm and friendly environment for thoughtful and engaging experiences. The Gallery features a variety of curated, traveling and juried exhibitions from contemporary art from local artists and internationally-recognized artists to themes of popular and cultural interest.
Please RSVP by 5 p.m. on Nov. 8 to 480-350-2867.
