  • Join us, be a Docent!

    Do you love public speaking? Sharing your love of the High and art with others? High Museum of Art Docents offer guided, interactive tours and in-gallery talks to a wide range of audiences. Dedicated to art and education, volunteer Docents are the first faces many of our visitors see and are essential in creating a meaningful and memorable Museum experience. Currently, the High has over 140 docents who serve the Museum, collectively conducting approximately 3000 tours each year.

    Create a lifelong passion for art.

    Docent Tour

    The High Museum of Art depends on its docent volunteers to be the Museum's "face" to its visitors. Docents create memorable experiences for visitors ranging in age from kindergarten students to seniors.

    Docents for the High Museum of Art are passionate about art education and are comfortable engaging with the public. They share a strong sense of camaraderie and enjoy the personal enrichment that comes through the academic training they receive and the pleasure of learning from and passing along their knowledge to others.

    Join us on Wednesday, October 5th, 2016 at 10 a.m. at an Open House for prospective new docents.

    For general questions about the docent program and to RSVP for the Open House, please contact Margaret Wilkerson, Coordinator of Education Volunteers, margaret.wilkerson@woodruffcenter.org. If you'd like to volunteer with the museum in another capacity, you may contact the High Museum Volunteer Coordinator or by phone at 404-733-4458 to learn about other volunteer opportunities such as lecture greeters or education studio volunteers.
