Volunteers & Docents

The Highlands Art League and Museum of the Arts is always looking for qualified volunteers to help us bring its mission to life by connecting people through art. As a volunteer, you will explore new areas of interest, meet inspiring people, get involved with HAL’s cultural community, attend social and educational events, and learn transferable skills. Volunteer hours are available on either a regular or an on-call basis during weekdays and weekends. Most opportunities are during the day, but some evening hours are available for our special events and educational opportunities.
Volunteers are encouraged to become members of the Highlands Art League, but it is not a requirement.

Docents are a vital part of the Highlands Museum of the Arts’ mission to educate and inspire audiences through the visual arts and its interpretation. Docents are specially trained volunteers who welcome our guests, inviting them to sign our guest book, and providing museum docent-led tours for school groups and visitors.
They facilitate learning about and making a connection with exhibitions through discussion of the artwork on exhibit and the artists whose work is on display. As a MotA docent, you will have the opportunity to become a more effective communicator and educator by interacting with a variety of visitors, to expand your knowledge of visual art through research and training provided by MotA, to connect with your community and a diverse group of art enthusiasts, and to attend special events and classes just for docents! Beginning August 1, Docents are needed Wednesdays – Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. & for evening events. Docents are encouraged to become members of the Highlands Art League, but it is not a requirement.
