IDENTITY INVESTIGATION (Ages 13–17)
Instructor: Renee Calway
Get inspired by the way Made in VA artists Katherine Prock and John Alan Stock approach the topic of identity. Exercise creative exploration and critical thinking skills to distinguish how aspects of appearance, personality, culture, and more contribute to the personal and social self by combining found materials, drawing, and painting to produce a wall-mounted installation.

Made in VA
For over 25 years, we have maintained a strong tradition of celebrating regional artists through our annual juried exhibition, New Waves. Our story finds its roots in a concerned and connected artist community. Virginia MOCA has never lost the goal of keeping ties with the talented artists who live close to our doors.
As our community evolves, so will the museum and its traditions. This year, New Waves has become Made in VA. The new title reasserts our commitment to Virginia artists. We will continue to bring together jurors who are at the top of their field with the talented contemporary artists found in the Commonwealth. With the new name come changes intended to strengthen our award program and provide opportunities for the growth and professional development of the selected artists.
