Richmond Family Magazine's "Kids Can-Do"
Since 2010, VMFA has partnered with Richmond Family Magazine to create fun and educational art projects for its "Kids Can-Do" section. Inspired by VMFA's collection and special exhibitions, these projects serve as a great resource for teachers, parents, and students, and provide inspiration for artists of all ages! RFM is a free, local monthly publication with the mission to help parents build healthy families and to inspire, enlighten, inform, and entertain.
