To become a KIA docent, you need no prior knowledge of art, just a willingness to learn, the enthusiasm to share your love of learning, comfort with public speaking, and a flexible schedule. Candidates will learn art processes, art history, touring and engagement techniques. Docents sign up to lead 1-2 tours a month, for a total of 18 per year.
