For Art Guides and Education Volunteers

Tuesdays: January 15, February 19, March 19, April 23

Do you love sharing art with others? Are you interested in leading tours of museum exhibitions for all ages and joining our stellar group of beloved volunteers? MAM’s education team will provide you with the necessary tools, skills, and practice to generate discussion and deepen the viewing experience for everyone. Four trainings will be offered, and all are appropriate for both new and returning Art Guides. Training includes an orientation to MAM’s inquiry-based interpretive strategy, as well as an in-depth look at exhibitions.

To lead tours at MAM you must attend at least one training and shadow one tour. Art guides are valued volunteers and receive a free membership for working six or more hours a year. Membership includes a 10 percent discount on classes, workshops, and bookstore purchases, as well as special invitations to members-only events. Email Jenny Bevill, MAM Educator/Coordinator, at to register.

Location: Missoula Art Museum 335 N. Pattee St. Missoula, MT
