Masterpiece art talk docents visit the same classroom 5-7 times each year, bringing selected art reproductions from our 800+ collection, to initiate discussions about art, techniques, styles and other age-appropriate topics, leaving behind one (1) reproduction for the classroom to enjoy until the next visit.

Our mission is to share the love of art with children and adults
throughout our community and to promote the art museum experience.
There is no need to have artistic skills or a background in art history or teaching. Docents are given comprehensive art history and art appreciation training. Continuing art education is available through the Monday Morning Program series.
Docent service opportunities include visiting classrooms using masterpiece art reproductions, giving art talks to teen and adult groups, and participating in programs, “Art in June,” “Art Days in the Library” and "Caldecott Books and Art for Kids."
Personal enrichment opportunities include the Monday Morning programs, field trips to museums and galleries around Arizona, and adventure trips to major cities outside of Arizona.
