Intro to Reynolda for Aspiring Docents
This multi-session course is the cornerstone of the Reynolda discovery experience. Using an interdisciplinary approach and the Museum’s collection, students will research correlations in art, literature, and music of the same time period. Participants will find themselves intrigued, challenged, and supported as they explore four centuries of art in the company of other lifelong learners.
Beth Hoover-DeBerry, manager of docent-volunteers, and Julia Hood, manager of school and family learning, are course instructors.
