MAY 6, 2011 – MAY 29, 2011

Junior Docents from Dover’s Campus Community School will be featured as the final celebration of this year’s program. The Junior Docent program, which was developed to conform to Delaware Visual and Performing Arts standards, allows the Biggs Museum to support art education by collaborating with local educators and their students. This program, offered free-of-charge, provides students with a unique opportunity to learn about the visual arts, apply their knowledge to specific works of art, and present their knowledge to their peers. Over the course of the program, Junior Docents build an art vocabulary, develop communication, critical thinking and research skills, and learn about the cultural history of the Museum’s collection. The overall goal of the program is to develop a long-term relationship between the student and the Museum in an effort to instill a lifelong appreciation for the arts.
