Cummer Museum Junior Docents



The Junior Docents of the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens are students in the sixth through twelfth grades. Each school year they contribute hours to the Museum and the community. They participate in varied learning experiences and create an exhibition consisting of their original artwork.

During this 2016/2017 school year, each Junior Docent created a work based on what most inspired them in the gardens. Their inspirations, represented in acrylic paint on paper, will be on exhibit throughout the summer in Art Connections.

The Junior Docents shared their works with visitors in the gardens on the evening of Tuesday March 28, 2017. Comparing their works to the gardens and speaking of their personal inspiration, Junior Docents were involved in numerous conversations throughout the evening.

“This opportunity really allowed me to connect my personal artistic passion to the beauty of the Museum gardens.” – Caitlin Wiegert, Junior Docent
