Volunteer at the Pence
Gallery Guides are community members who donate three hours of their time monthly to greet and inform visitors on the current exhibits on display. Another important task for Gallery Guides is to help with small administrative projects and to record purchases in our Gift Shop.
are volunteers who guide tours to school children (ages 8-18) about the history of art. They encourage active looking and critical thinking skills, and give from 1-4 hours/month. They participate in a brief training session with the Curator, and learn about specific artists or art periods in order to inform their visitors.
No previous experience in art is needed, just a willingness to learn about art, and a love to working with children and youth.
