Are you interested in being on Team WAM? Do you have what it takes to get excited about all forms and genres of American art? Do you enjoy sharing your enthusiasm with groups of school children? Are you looking for opportunities to keep engaged and active and give back to the Wichita community? WAM is looking for you.

WAM trains volunteer tour guides to provide exceptional educational tours for visitors to the museum. Docents undertake training to learn about art history, museum education, touring and interactive strategies, and communication skills. Being a docent at WAM encourages greater visual and cultural literacy, fosters lifelong learning, and creates lasting friendships. For more information, email education@wichitaartmuseum.org.
