Student Docent Program
Student docents participate in six docent training sessions, conduct independent research on works in the Museum collection, offer gallery tours to museum visitors, and present a gallery lecture accompanied by a short paper. Student docents, who must register for ART 211, receive two non-graded credit hours upon completion of this course.
Student Docent Lectures
The Colby College Museum of Art sponsors a series of lectures by Colby students who are part of the museum’s docent program. The Student Docent Gallery Lecture Series provides an opportunity for students to present findings of their scholarly research and for patrons to learn more about works in the museum’s collection. The series is open to the public and free of charge, and all talks begin in the Museum lobby.
