we were with their talents!         Sarasota Elementary School Teacher

Our Docent Program partnership with Riverview High School continues to be the jewel in our crown with more than 140 students involved as docents and mentors to younger children participating in our educational initiatives at Island Park.

Under the guidance of Faculty Advisor Dena Sturm, our student docents work in the park daily leading groups of younger students through the exhibit, inspiring them to recognize and understand the messages delivered through the art and quotes. With their guided questions and planted seeds of inquiry, students are led to realizations of their own about diversity and acceptance of not only themselves but of others who may be different. Student docent tours were provided to 5,578 K-8 children visiting the exhibit in 2017.

Scheduling your student docent is quick and easy. Register online for your FREE field trip, and simply click “YES” when asked, “Would you like to have a student docent?”  You will be contacted with more details prior to visiting the exhibit.

For 2018, our Docent Program is available from April 4 thru May 18, 2018.
