¤ The Steamboat Springs Arts Council is seeking volunteers for its Docent Program. Arts council docents are trained volunteers who staff the depot galleries, help interpret and explain exhibits and encourage visitor interaction with the artwork, furthering the mission of the arts council. They help with unpacking exhibit items, hanging shows and hosting opening receptions. Docents also coordinate the annual Studio Tour and facilitate the "Art for Seniors" program at the Doak Walker Care Center. They are available to lead guided tours of the exhibits to schools and groups. Docents meet monthly for seminars, as well as occasional field trips. Docents continue their arts education by attending the monthly art seminars and gallery talks by presenting artists and exhibition judges, and participating in docent-sponsored field trips. Docents also are encouraged to attend art-education events and classes at CMC or presented to the community. For more information, contact email@example.com or call 879-9008, ext. 106.
