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.

Video: What to Expect

Take a Closer Look

Spending time to look carefully at the form, imagery, texture, and patterns of a work of art can help students consider and become curious about the materials and techniques, artistic conventions, and cultural contexts of unfamiliar objects. Use this interactive exercise to guide students as they examine an Ancient American work of art, document the ideas it presents to them, and consider how their thoughts connect with what we know about the artist’s own ideas and intentions.

Use this interactive exercise to set the stage for a Distance Learning session, or for continued engagement after a visit.
