Volunteer Activity for Interested Students:
Dallas Art Dealers Association is seeking high school and community college students to be docents for its upcoming Fall Gallery Walk on Sept. 24. This is a great opportunity for students to meet gallery professionals, to work on public speaking skills, and to learn about the business of art as well as about artists.
Orientation for the DADA Docents program is Saturday, Sept. 10 10 a.m.-noon at The MAC, 3120 McKinney Ave. in Uptown Dallas. Molly Kysar, formerly in charge of docent training for the Dallas Museum of Art, is volunteering to train the students. DADA Docents will chose from the participating DADA members and work on Saturday, Sept. 24 at a time to be determined by the DADA members. They will be expected to dress business casual, be on time, be courteous and respectful and to share their enthusiasm and expertise regarding the art on the walls of their chosen gallery.
A pre and post survey will be given to the students for DADA’s Edith Baker Artist Career Development programming.
All high school and community college students are invited, no geographic or age restrictions. Please contact Lisa Taylor, Executive Director of DADA at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-914-1099.
