MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS DOCENT TRAINING PROGRAM

Quincy Public Schools’ MFA Docent Program is an amazing opportunity for you to take advantage of one of the world’s greatest cultural institutions:  Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.  As an MFA student docent you will be trained to understand and appreciate galleries that fit into a special theme that complements the freshman social studies curriculum.  In the past we have explored:  Asian Art, Influences of Classicism, American Art, and Religious Art.  In addition to being a once in a lifetime opportunity, this is also a serious COMMITMENT and there are both expectations and rewards that you should understand.

 

You will be expected to attend all four training sessions at the Museum, from 9:00am to 2:30 pm.  In addition, you will present your pieces of art to Social Studies students from both Quincy and North Quincy High Schools at two field trips this spring and two field trips for the following two academic years.

 

The goal of this program is to be able to discuss the collection and relate your experience and knowledge from the Museum back to the classroom.  You will be developing new skills and hopefully new friendships while still managing to have some fun!

 

Here are dates for this year’s the training sessions:

​​Training days are February 7, March 7 & 14, and April 11.

 

Dates for the spring field trips with 9th grade Social Studies classes were:

May 2 and  May 30

 

Written application deadline is Wednesday, January 17th.  Please fill out the online application form.  Essay questions should be emailed to qhs2me@gmail.com.    The list will of new docents will be posted on Monday, January 22nd and you should pick up permission slips that day.  There will be a mandatory meeting on Tuesday, January 30 @12:30 (Early Release Day) and your FT forms will be due at that meeting but you may turn them in early.
