Newly Minted Docents

The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA) has trained a few more of our 8th graders to be docents. Spring training ended in early May, and on Tuesday, May 17, our new docents led their classmates on a museum tour of works by American artists. 

The student docent-training program, which took place after school hours at PAFA, was a wonderful addition to our 8th grade curriculum this year. Special thanks to PAFA educator Elizabeth Hamilton and to TPS 8th grade teacher Emily Marston, who coordinated the program and who shepherded the students on SEPTA to the museum on Tuesdays afternoons in the fall and spring.
