RAM Docent

RAM docents serve as valuable guides for scheduled tours, school field trips, Free First Fridays, and special events at RAM and Wustum. 

The rewarding benefits of being a docent include: an extensive art education, behind-the-scenes experiences, and discussions with the museum's curators and other docents.
