Early Childhood Art Classes

In VMFA’s Early Childhood Education programs, infants, toddlers, and preschool age children discover the world around them through playing, singing, exploring, and creating. Held in the classroom, galleries, and studio, these programs foster children’s development, early literacy, autonomy, and decision-making skills. Register online or phone 804.340.1405.
