The training of future docents became a little more real to me last week. My assignment was to "shadow" a 6th grade field trip visit to the Asian Art Museum and observe the docents, kids, and parents to see learn what to expect. I found 6th graders are great. Their old enough to really engage with the art yet not too old to feel the whole experience is just not cool enough to warrant their attention. In this photo above they are lining up in front of the museum as the teacher distributes tickets to each one. Bless public school teachers!
