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
Objects created and used when the United States was a new republic can offer clues to the ideas and attitudes that may have been prevalent at the time. Spending time to thoughtfully examine and explain their own ideas about such an object encourages students to become curious and open lines of inquiry about historical context.
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.
