Butler seeks docents


The Butler Institute of American Art is offering classes for new docents.

Docents are trained museum volunteers who offer teaching, understanding and appreciation of art through guided tours of the permanent collection.

No previous museum experience is necessary, but a willingness to participate and commitment to study the museum collection are. Classes will begin in mid-September and run through mid-April.

For additional information, contact education director Joyce Mistovich at 330-743-1107, ext. 1101.
