Charleston Day Junior Docent Program

Charleston Day School and the Gibbes Museum of Art partnered during the 2009-2010 school year to create a Junior Docent Program under the direction of Middle School Head Andy Willits. Twenty 8th grade students toured the Gibbes exhibition The Charleston Story with Museum Educators Elise Detterbeck and Pat Burgess. Each student then chose one art object that they studied and later presented to 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students. On May 12th, the 8th graders presented the tour to their parents, followed by a reception to help recognize their hard work.
