Writer's Eye 2018

Family Art JAMs

These popular programs combine age-appropriate tours with hands-on art activities that make the Museum's exhibitions accessible to children. The introduction of new art materials and techniques challenges children to think in new ways, and interactive tours help them develop the confidence to talk about art.

Fun for the Young @ The Fralin

Start with a book, and then go look! Children enjoy a story read by arts educator Aimee Hunt and explore an artwork through observation, movement, play, and simple hands-on projects.

Wednesdays from 10–11 am: 2–4 year olds and their grownups

Registration is required for each session. RSVP 434.243.2050 or email.

Alumni parents register through the Reunions Weekend registration. Community children are welcome if we have extra space.

Babies in Artland

Specifically designed for adult caregivers and their infant companions, Babies in Artland invites lively conversation about works of art, with baby coos and cries encouraged. There will be time to share and ask questions about art and parenting. We recommend slings over strollers when possible, and a 1:1 adult to  infant ratio, but will work to accommodate parents of twins.

Toddlers in Artland

Wondering how to look at art with your little one? Join us for a new 45-minute program for toddlers and their adult companions. Led by a Museum educator, pairs will be introduced to big ideas in development theory and given time to playfully practice strategies in the Museum space.

Tuesdays from 10–10:45 am: toddlers 12-24 months, with their grownups
