CAM Student Docent Program

  • CAM Docents  

    CAM meets on Wednesdays after school until 5:00pm and on Friday from 6:00pm-8:00pm at the Contemporary Art Museum.  They will also participate in an exhibition opening and First Fridays.  See website for more info. 

    The Student Docent Program is a school program for grades six through eight designed to equip students with the necessary skills to discover and connect with contemporary art and design. 
     
    CAM Raleigh's middle school docents attend a series of after-school sessions with a Museum Educator. Training sessions use an inquiry-based approach to teach students the skills needed to decode and analyze works of art featured in CAM Raleigh's exhibitions. When training is complete, these young docents use the same approach to engage museum visitors in a conversation about the work on view.
