2011-12 Teen Docent

Congratulations to Di junior Kevin Garcia for being selected for the Teen Docent Program at the Palm Springs Art Museum!

The dedicated students in this program are interviewed by Museum staff in the spring and spend the summer learning about art history and public speaking techniques. During the school year they tour classes from local elementary schools, teaching kids about the Museum's collection and exhibits. As part of the program, docents receive school credit, learn about various art genres, bond with students from other schools, and get a $250 stipend each semester they participate.
