buying art is different

  • our mission

    It's about time we democratized creating and buying art, because art is for everyone. DOCENT exists at the intersection of helping artists thrive while also helping collectors shop more easily, efficiently and confidently for pieces they truly love.

  • support for artists

    We're striving to create a more balanced art marketplace so that artists have the opportunity to make a living out of their art. Our "digital first" model actually supports artists so you can feel good about supporting them too.

  • why original art

    Well, for starters, it's one-of-a-kind. It has a connection, a story and nuances like brushstrokes and texture to appreciate. Plus, your purchase supports the arts in your community and the world. Who doesn't want more art in the world!

  • women in the arts

    Historically, the people in charge of promoting, showing and selling art are often not interested in women's productions. We are committed to championing and amplifying the work of female artists.
