MOCA's Outreach Programs are offered to public and independent schools throughout Hampton Roads.  

These fast-paced and hands-on courses for elementary school aged students emphasize critical thinking skills and integrate visual art while reinforcing the Virginia SOLs.

Researchers have found that using visual art in any capacity, and with any area of study, whether it is social studies, science, language arts or mathematics, greatly increases our children's ability to learn and retain information. 

what programs are offered?

We provide 10 action-packed courses for students in grades 1-5. These Outreach Programs focus on integrating the principles of contemporary visual art with Virginia Standards of Learning curriculum goals. MOCA's Outreach Educators work with over 10,000 students across Hampton Roads each year. Book your program today!
