TAM Docents: Training on Monday, March 23

Hello Docents-

I am looking to Monday’s final round of presentations:

Linda Flatley                  Zhi Lin and Victor Maldonado

Bev Bright                      Eric Elliot and Denzil Hurley

Elizabeth Walsh              Scott Trimble and Eric Elliot

Terry Dew                     Doug Keyes and Susan Seubert

Debora Kernan               Tannaz Farsi and Sarah Hood


Attached is some information on touring techniques. For the second half of our training, I would like to spend some time discussing how tours are going for the Biennial and, time permitting, Speaking Parts. Think about the approaches that work well and some things that haven’t been as effective so that insights can be shared. This will be more of an open discussion. I found the article attached useful in describing the 2 basic tour styles that we tend to offer and to offer up some good approaches and I wanted to include them in with our discussion.


Thank you for all that you do for Tacoma Art Museum!
