A Gallery Preview
Before your visit to VMFA, introduce your students to the galleries. Let them explore the space and imagine what they can find there!
Meet the Educator
VMFA Distance Learning sessions are designed to be student-centered explorations. Use this video to introduce students to the Distance Learning Educator and the kind of interaction they will have during a session.
Take a Closer Look
Photographs are an art form that often documents and interprets moments in time. For students of history, thoughtfully examining a photograph from over a century ago can provide a window into the past and provide insight into how an artist was responding to the world around him. Students are able to activate prior knowledge while developing insight into historical perspectives.
Use this interactive exercise to set the stage for a Distance Learning session, or for continued engagement after a visit.
Document Your Visit

Experiential learning can be an informal but valuable way for teachers to gauge student understanding of a topic under study. This tool may be used to document student ideas expressed during your museum visit or Evans Distance Learning session.
