Ongoing Opportunities

SMoCA Docent Program

Applications for the 2018–19 freshman docent class is closed. We will begin accepting applications for the 2019–20 class on April 1, 2019.

Do you love contemporary art? Are you a great storyteller? Do you love learning and want to share that knowledge with others? Join our SMoCA Docent Program and immerse yourself in the amazing world of contemporary art.

Through this program, you’ll learn about museums, contemporary art and, most importantly, engagement techniques for all kinds of visitors. No special training or background in art is required, and applicants from all backgrounds are encouraged. You will be rewarded with opportunities to participate in SMoCA and across all branches of Scottsdale Arts in unique and exciting ways.
