Meet the 2011 Teen Docents!

Our Teenage Docent program this summer includes five local high school students, all of whom receive a stipend provided by United Summer Grants to work at the Ogden through June and July. In addition to leading summer tours of the Ogden’s collection, Kayla, Drea, Kinmont, Alvin and Lionell are providing invaluable help as counselors at Summer Play Time this month. In July, they will work with a puppet artist to create their own puppet shows — based on works in the Ogden’s collection — which they will then use to provide local art outreach at libraries, schools, and other community centers. The opportunity to take private tours of museums and art galleries in the area rounds out an art-filled summer.
