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.

Monday Morning Programs
Come join us Mondays beginning at 10:00 am for our social gathering then at 10:30 am we showcase many of the local artists and our own Docents. Click to view our calendar.
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 training, which has been condensed to a 12-week session, offered both in the fall and the spring of a school year. 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 adult groups, and participating in two programs, “Art in June” and “Art Days in the Library” in conjunction with the Prescott Public Library.
Personal enrichment opportunities include the Monday Morning programs, field trips to museums and galleries around Arizona, and a biennial adventure trip to major cities outside of Arizona.
