Oakland’s Museum of Children's Art (MOCHA) Community Programs bring cultural arts learning to children and their families throughout Oakland and around the Bay Area. Through ongoing partnerships with Oakland public schools, we also provide creative Youth Leadership and Development, Internships and work-based learning experiences for high school students. 
MOCHA programs emphasize outreach to Oakland neighborhoods, libraries & schools where the majority of students are from low resourced communities, perform below academic testing, and are from families with limited resources to procure enrichment services.

Community Partnerships

MOCHA partners with local community organizations, libraries and non-profits to provide ongoing art making events to the larger community.


Community Art Pop-Ups

MOCHA collaborates with event planners, festival organizers and activity coordinators to bring art programming to one-time events for audiences of all ages.
