Visitor Guide Overview

Essential Responsibilities:

Visitor Guides help facilitate the experiences that position Art Works Downtown as a lively and welcoming cultural center that brings together people, art, and ideas.

Upon successful completion of the initial training, Visitor Guides will be available in the main gallery to welcome visitors, answer questions, provide information, and engage visitors in impromptu conversations with artists working in their studios. Visitor Guides will also give public tours of the building's architecture and history. In addition, Visitor Guides will be available at special events to engage the public with the artists.

Besides impromptu tours, we will strive to have regularly scheduled tours on Wednesdays, and advertise on the website so that a visitor might come in specifically for a tour. This will enable studio artists to schedule some studio time around the tour time.

In the training sessions, Visitor Guides will be introduced to the artists, will gain an understanding of how art is working for the community, and will learn about the history of the building and its part in the revitalization of downtown San Rafael.


  • Curiosity and passion
  • Participation in a training session plus the ability to make a 12-month commitment of at least 8-10 hours per month. This may include being available for special events, parties, and receptions.


  • Excellent interpersonal and customer service skills, and a sense of fun!
  • A genuine interest in the arts
  • Experience working or volunteering in an art, cultural, or educational setting
  • Some experience facilitating conversations
  • Experience giving interactive, discussion-based tours preferred
