Virtual Tours

Join a Virginia MOCA educator for a virtual tour, streamed live from our galleries. Tours use a selection of works from our current exhibitions to foster close observation, critical-thinking, and rich discussions that support learning standards through an inquiry-based approach. Tours can be designed for all age-levels. Please complete this form to request a Virtual Tour.

MOCA’s Teen Apprenticeship Program (TAP) is a unique opportunity for 10-15 high school students to learn about contemporary art, MOCA, and related careers in the arts. Applications for Spring 2021 will be available in October 2020.

Classroom Resouces

In the wake of the pandemic, we have created a new site exclusively dedicated to additional resources and information on our current exhibitions. Please visit to access our virtual galleries, artist interviews, recorded videos and making activities that can be completed from home. 

Professional Development Workshops

Created for educators of all grade levels and subject areas, our teacher workshop series are specially designed to connect teachers with contemporary art and artists.  Workshop themes and focus change according to each exhibition. These programs are being conducted virtually for the foreseeable future.
