MOCHA is committed to bringing arts education programs to East Bay schools & communities.

What MOCHA Does

Schools 

Engaging students in a range of visual arts disciplines that connect with

their interests and studies and

deepen their understanding through exposure to a diversity of periods, styles and cultures

Libraries

MOCHA’s Afterschool Art at the Library Program directly aligns with our mission to provide meaningful arts learning opportunities to children who are at risk academically and/or reside in communities underserved by the arts and cultural programming

Community

MOCHA emphasizes outreach to culturally, linguistically and economically diverse populations in communities that do not typically have wide access to the arts.

"Arts subjects encourage self-expression and creativity and can build confidence as well as a sense of individual identity; studying arts subjects also help to develop critical thinking and the ability to interpret the world around us.” - Tate.org

“No” is a word we try to avoid. At MOCHA, when there is an opportunity that supports our community and our mission, we always look for the “Yes” in every situation.

At MOCHA, all of our work is in the service of ensuring access to the arts for everyone, especially those who are historically underserved.
