Docents

YEAR-ROUND OR SEASONAL PARTICIPATION 

Become part of the SJIMA adventure! 

If you enjoy art, and are able to spare a few hours a month, you might love volunteering as a docent at the San Juan Island Museum of Art. 

Experience one-on-one interaction with artists and art lovers from around the world. Acquire in-depth knowledge of nationally acclaimed artists and their work. Open the eyes of children and tour groups to the joys of art.

Being a docent enables you to learn about exciting and ever-changing art exhibitions, share your knowledge with visitors from near and afar, and become a part of a community of people committed to educating and inspiring others through art.  You don’t need to be an artist or have an art background to be a part of this; we provide training! 

If interested, please give us a call at 360-370-5050. We can arrange to give you a tour of the museum, tell you more about what it means be a docent, and answer any questions you may have.  

Docent training will be ongoing, with plenty of workshops and demonstrations.
