MOCHA offers FREE weekly art workshops at 10 Oakland Public Library branches. Join MOCHA Teaching Artists in these workshops for children and families.
MOCHA brings programming to the Berkeley Public Library, beginning Fall 2022 to offer FREE weekly art workshops at two Berkeley Public Library branches.
MOCHA is a proud BCZ community partner that hosts an Art Pop Up Program with free hands-on art making and book giveaways at the Akoma Market and Outdoor Play Day. Come join us!
MOCHA's National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Big Read 22-23 project will include readings from Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude by Ross Gay and I Am Loved by Nikki Giovanni texts, opportunities for art-making, community book discussions, and poetry arts facilitated by the Museum of Children's Art and the Center for Urban Excellence in collaboration with the Oakland Public Library.
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.
MOCHA partners with local Bay Area community organizations, libraries, festivals and non-profits to provide ongoing art centered experiences and placemaking programming to the larger community.
