VMFA is pleased to present artworks by participants in our Summer Art Adventures program for ages 5–12. Each work was selected based on the students’ enthusiasm, creativity, and artistic process. This collection represents the culmination of weeks of exploration, experimentation, and artistic expression.

Throughout the summer, students were encouraged to explore various media, techniques, and styles while learning about and being inspired by VMFA’s diverse collection. Professional artists and educators also worked with students to integrate math, science, language, history, and technology as they correlate with the Virginia Standards of Learning objectives, fostering a holistic approach to education. Through engagement with instructors and interactions with peers, these young artists cultivated not only their technical skills and artistic voice but also their creativity, critical thinking, and confidence.

Each piece tells a unique story, offering a glimpse into the minds and hearts of these budding artists. We hope you enjoy this showcase of the accomplishments and talent of VMFA’s skilled students!
