Kimbell Docent Program 

Volunteer docents are a vital part of the Kimbell's education mission. They are committed to the study and discussion of artworks from the Kimbell's permanent collection and special exhibitions, and to sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm with student and adult visitors during tours and other education programs. After one year of mandatory training, docents must fulfill twenty-five tour hours and thirty hours of continuing education annually.

Docent training classes take place every three to four years, according to the needs of the department. Individuals interested in applying to become a docent must email us to request an application; completed forms will be kept on file until the interviews and selection process for the next docent training class begins. After successful completion of the year-long training, new docents are asked to commit to two years of active service.
