Looking for volunteers

The Art Gallery is looking for more volunteers to help with children’s programs, in particular, school visits. This may interest some of you—it’s a wonderful way to connect children and art!

Here’s information about upcoming training:

At the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Western branch, here in Yarmouth, we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to act as docents for our school tours. More bookings for school visits are being made now from all over the tri-county area, thanks in large part to the Friends of the Art Gallery who now offer financial help with the cost of bussing. With the increase in bookings comes an increase in the number of volunteers that we need to give quality programs for the classes.

Docents are trained guides who introduce students to exhibits and play an important role in making the Gallery visit a rewarding and instructive experience. We do give training and support! An introductory training session is being planned for Tuesday, March 3rd at the Gallery. This will be a full day with lunch provided.

We would love to hear from you if you are interested in a volunteer experience that’s unique, challenging, and a lot of fun! Please call the AGNS at 902 749-2248 for more information and to put your name down for March 3rd.

Please let us know if you’d like to know more—Thanks!

It will also include a Chocolate Espresso Brownie cup with their Decadent Chocolate Mousse piped into it, topped with a fresh Strawberry slice, atop a bed of Crème Fraiche, Chocolate Cookie Crumbs and Chocolate Drizzle.

Sebastien says, “We will demonstrate the preparation of each of these while also discussing our process in choosing menu items and developing the recipes and presentation of each item.”
