It’s never too soon to introduce your child to art! Use rhyming activities, simple stories in the galleries, and safe art activities in the studio to enjoy VMFA with your baby!

See our youngest visitors as they experience art for the first time, explore a variety of sensory stimuli, and playfully get to know each other and the museum in this segment which aired on WCVE in April 2014.

To determine if this class is developmentally suited for your child, please contact Lori Valente Coffey at 804.340.1343.
