School tours are an important part of the educational programming at the Pizzuti Collection. We offer guided visits to students of all levels, from preschool to graduate students, which are adapted to meet the needs of each group and speak to specific areas of study overlapping with our current exhibitions. Teachers of young students are encouraged to use our downloadable “Guide for Teachers and Parents” which features information about the artworks and artists on view and how to prepare students for a visit. The Pizzuti Collection also offers sketchbooks, pencils, and a scavenger hunt activity. These simple materials encourage slow and thoughtful viewing in the galleries.
To help lower barriers to access, the Pizzuti Collection offers school visits and student admission free of charge.
February begins Educator Appreciation at the Pizzuti Collection, an outreach program, during which educators of all kinds are offered complimentary admission and encouraged to learn more about class visits and incorporating our exhibitions into their curricula.

Docents at Pizzuti Collection tour visitors and school groups and roam through our galleries during weekend visiting hours. Docents undergo a training period each year to prepare for each season’s multiple exhibitions. Docents agree to monthly meetings and must give one tour a month. They also enjoy social events and access to insider art events. New docent classes are formed each year in June. Pizzuti Collection docents should be eager to learn, comfortable speaking publicly, and open to interacting with all visitors. For information about the docent program, please email Mark Zuzik, Program Coordinator, at email@example.com.
Pizzuti Collection offers internships for undergraduate, graduate, and recently graduated students. An internship at the Pizzuti Collection promotes hands on and practical experience in a nonprofit contemporary art space. Interns work closely with Pizzuti Collection staff members and participate in educational, curatorial, development, marketing, and event programming. We ask that interns commit one full day a week (10:00AM-5:00PM) to the Pizzuti Collection over the course of a semester. Internships are unpaid.
Please send your resume, class and/or work schedule, references and a statement of interest and intent (no more than 500 words) to David Butler, Education and Outreach Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
