Gallery Teacher Meet + Greet

Virginia MOCA

Gallery Teachers are an essential part of Virginia MOCA's visitor experience, serving as guides and educators for the Museum's diverse and dynamic exhibitions. Among the many benefits of this volunteer position, we also require an initial commitment of one year to the program, participation in all mandatory trainings, and leading an average of three tours per month. Join us for our Meet + Greet event on Wednesday, April 17 to learn more about this exciting opportunity firsthand. Meet current gallery teachers and other art enthusiasts, participate in a tour demonstration, and complete an informal interview with Museum staff.
