Docent Program

Swope docents are trained volunteer educators who facilitate the experience of visitors in the Swope’s permanent collection and special exhibitions. Docents guide visitors of all ages on inquiry-based tours designed to expand the visitors’ experience with an appreciation for art.

Prior knowledge about art is not required to become a docent. You simply need to have an enthusiasm for learning and sharing with others. For more information about the docent program, please email Emily Bennett, Director of Education, at, or call 812.238.1676 x 130.
