The Docent Program
Free docent tours of the art gallery are offered to students, adults and residents from assisted living facilities and the special needs community. They learn to observe, analyze and evaluate art in the context of history and appreciate different styles and types of art. Even through the Covid pandemic of 2020-2021, the Guild of Creative Art was able to conduct some in person docent tours, as well as virtual tours, to several community groups. This is a very popular on-going outreach program under the direction of David Levy and Barbara Russo, GCA co-presidents.
Upon request, a visiting artist will work with all members of the community from preschool to special needs. The program will be tailored to the needs of the group. This program combines interdisciplinary projects which develop critical thinking skills, and an awareness of one’s surroundings, to problem-solving and thinking outside the box. These are transferable skills not only in the visual arts, but in our everyday life.
