Go van Gogh® summer outreach volunteers lead experiences in Dallas Public Libraries for children ages 5-12. Programs are one hour in length and include interactive conversations about artworks and opportunities for art-making. Interested volunteers must attend three training sessions on Friday mornings in late May and early June. Volunteers are asked to commit to presenting two outreach programs a month during June, July, and August.
Go van Gogh® school volunteers lead experiences in Dallas elementary classrooms that encourage students to look closely at works of art in the Museum's collection and make a creative expression. Mandatory training sessions take place from September through February. In addition, volunteers are asked to commit to presenting programs two mornings a month during the school year.

The desire to communicate the power of art to others is the main requirement to become a docent. After completing a yearlong training program consisting of lectures, gallery talks, and workshops led by Museum staff and outside experts, docents conduct weekly tours for groups of visitors ranging from elementary school students to adult visitors.
We are not currently accepting applications for the docent program. If you would like to be placed on a list to be contacted in the future, e-mail Shannon Karol at skarol@DMA.org.
