Art docent is a title given to persons who serve as guides and educators for the art museums they serve, usually on a volunteer basis. The English word itself is derived from the Latin word docens which means to teach.
Here at Mayfield an art docent is an adult volunteer who presents an art enrichment lesson once a month during the months of January - May in grades kindergarten through third.
