2013-14 Teen Docent

Congratulations to DATA DI senior, Mayra Garcia, for being selected as a 2013-14 Teen Docent at the Palm Springs Art Museum!

Perspective students apply in Spring, are interviewed, and attend an exciting summer training where they learn art history, public speaking, tour development, and how to think on their feet in front of an audience. 

During the school year, docents give tours to elementary school children to help them learn how to look at and talk about art.

Welcome to a New School Year!

Many great things are happening in the DATA program as we continue into our 2nd decade

The entire document is reviewed with students the first day of school. As a means of saving paper, only the first and last pages are sent home for households to read, sign, and return.
If needed, a print copy maybe be requested.
