Family & Children Activities
Looking to Learn: Art & Story Time
These program guides are designed to accompany our family program, Looking to Learn.
Children ages 3–8 and their caregivers join us each month to look, learn, and make in response to themes from our current exhibitions. This program includes close-looking at artwork, reading of a storybook and a making activity inspired by the theme.

Community Cookbook of Comfort
Inspired by our food-themed suite of exhibitions—Nourish, American Appetite: Selections from the Chrysler Museum, Real Food Films, & Open (C)all: Food and Memory—Virginia MOCA invited Hampton Roads cooks, bakers, and makers of all ages and skill levels to share recipes of comfort.
