Teen Docent Program
Initiated in the summer of 2001, the DMA Teen Docent program provides opportunities for high school students to initiate and deepen their relationship with the Dallas Museum of Art. Qualified students are invited to train as teen docents and eventually facilitate summer tours. Tours involve leading young visitors (ages 5-12) in conversations and gallery activities based on works of art in the Museum. If you would like to learn more, e-mail Shannon Karol at skarol@DMA.org.
