CAM Raleigh’s middle school docents attend a series of after-school sessions with a Museum Educator. Training sessions use an inquiry-based approach to teach students the skills needed to decode and analyze works of art featured in CAM Raleigh’s exhibitions. When training is complete, these young docents use the same approach to engage museum visitors in a conversation about the work on view.
