DATA Students Selected for 2009 Docent Program

Congratulations to DATA Digital Imaging senior Markie Hackwith and DATA Digital Imaging junior Arin Wall for being selected as Palm Springs Art Museum teen docents for 2009 - 2010 school year.

Students from across the valley were given the opportunity to apply to the  program at the Museum.  Interviews were conducted by Education Programs Manager Emily Spallina, and those students selected participated in a three week summer training program to learn about art, art history, museum education, and public speaking. 

"We lead weekly tours for local elementary school students, teaching them about how artists use the elements of art," said  Hackwith.

"It is great to receive a $250 stipend, school credit, a Sun Bus pass," said Wall, "and also know that we will enrich the lives of children through the arts."
