Art Docent Class of 2017
“an outstanding group that will only improve on the strength of our organization”
7 trainees will graduate at the December 12th holiday party this year. It is an outstanding group that will only improve on the strength of our organization.
Since our last update, the trainees have chosen the committees they’re interested in, had a full walk-through of the docent office with Stefanie and chosen, prepped and most have given their final full print presentation. In addition, experienced docents also presented demonstrations for them. Stacey C demonstrated the fourth grade digital lesson on California architecture, Ros E presented the fifth grade site-specific art installation lesson, Ellen O led the trainees in the kindergarten foil workshop and Michelle A will demonstrate the Spanish art history lesson at the last class of the training.
Four of the trainees have completed their full print presentations and were evaluated using a form developed last year. All three trainers gave a thorough critique for them to use to further improve and prepare for their actual classroom presentations in January. The final three trainees will present and be similarly evaluated at the last session.
Thank you to all the docents that assisted in our training this year, each of you enhanced the program greatly. We are so grateful for the continued generosity of our members!
