They’re baaaaccccck!

Our 2012 middle school student docent program kicked off its first week of training this week. Twenty-one students from Moore Square Museums Magnet Middle School and Exploris Middle School have been selected to serve as docents for our upcoming Born Digital exhibition.

Over the next four weeks, our docents will learn the ins and outs of CAM Raleigh while they meet exhibiting artists and curators and witness Born Digital come to life. Training sessions employ an inquiry-based approach to teach docent and leadership skills to decode and critically analyze works of art featured in the exhibition. When our training is complete, these young docents will use this same approach to engage our museum visitors in a conversation about the work on view.
