Washington County Museum of Fine Arts docents are a diverse group of committed volunteers who have a love of art and enjoy sharing it with visitors. Docents are dedicated, enthusiastic, imaginative, and flexible. They help Museum visitors discover the world of art, while encouraging them to explore, question, and understand the works of art in our collection.
Our docent program serves visitors from throughout the region, nation-wide, and internationally. The Museum also hosts bus and group tours that include schools, civic organizations, clubs, and many others. Docents are trained in basic art concepts and have a working knowledge of the Museum’s collection. New docents are always welcome and needed to continue our mission.

We will use these works to investigate meaning and aesthetic considerations in the visual arts while placing them in their broad cultural and historical contexts. Successive periods and styles will be explored such as the Renaissance and Baroque (including 17th century Dutch, Italian, and French art), Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism, and modern movements
