Dallas Art Dealers Association is seeking high school and community college students to be docents for its upcoming Spring Gallery Walk on April 26.
This is a great opportunity for students to meet gallery professionals, to work on public speaking skills, to learn about the business of art, as well as, about artists.
Required orientation for the DADA Docents program is Saturday, April 12 from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at The MAC, 3120 McKinney Ave.
DADA Docents will be assigned to a DADA member gallery and work on Saturday, April 26. The time will be determined by the gallery. They will be expected to dress business casual, be on time, be courteous and respectful and to share their enthusiasm and expertise regarding the art on the walls of their chosen gallery.
A pre and post survey will be given to the students for DADA’s Edith Baker Artist Career Development programming.
All high school and community college students are invited, no geographic or age restrictions. Please contact Lisa Taylor, Executive Director of DADA at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-914-1099.
