Early Childhood Art Classes

Infants, toddlers, and preschool age children discover the world around them in VMFA’s Early Childhood Education classes. Young learners play, sing, explore, and create in the classroom, galleries, and studio. These programs foster children’s development, early literacy, autonomy, and decision-making skills. Caregivers will enjoy interacting with their children and watching them develop into intentional, creative artists! Register online or phone 804.340.1405.
