Early Visions

Each semester, The Fralin offers the ten-week Early Visions program in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Central Virginia. UVA students and members of the Boys and Girls Club are paired in mentoring relationships to build self-esteem, explore museum exhibitions, and collaborate on creative projects that relate the children's discoveries to their own lives. Mentors and mentees learn about and from one another while making art together!

For University student mentors, the daylong training program includes an overview of Charlottesville’s history, exercises to build self-awareness and communication skills, and fundamental techniques in art education. Early Visions offers a fun social and creative break from academics, as well as an opportunity for students to gain practical experience working with children and contribute to their community. Apply here. Applications are due January 23, 2023.

If your child attends the Cherry Avenue, Jack Jouett, or Southwood Boys & Girls Club, inquire with their Club leaders.
