In person Field Trips are back starting October, booking now!
MOCHA Field Trips are a great way to spend the school year. We offer an array of art lessons and can customize curriculum based on what you are learning in your classroom. Your family, class, or community group will participate in an engaging art lesson led by a professional teaching artist.
Lessons include an educational presentation as well as opportunities for hands-on making. Each lesson is 1.5 hours long (grades K-12), and 1 hour (Pre-K). For groups larger than 30, a second reservation may be required and groups may need to be staggered.
MOCHA Field Trips are not just for children; we frequently have middle school and high school students participate too!

K – 12 Art Lessons
All of our lessons are developmentally appropriate and based on the California Visual Arts Standards. Choose a lesson from our list below and a MOCHA teaching artist will discuss how to adapt projects to your curriculum goals.
Let’s get our hands dirty and create with clay. Student artists will familiarize themselves with the properties of clay and basic hand-building techniques. Students will then use these new found skills to create their own decorative clay pieces.
Students will discuss and experiment with lines through printmaking. After a brief demonstration, students will dive in and experiment by creating their own design and transferring it to their styrofoam printing plate. They will then learn to “pull” prints of their images in various colors.
Let your creativity flow as we explore the intersection of African history and culture with science fiction and technology in order to re-imagine the future. Students will use various painting techniques and collage to create their art.
Artists like Kehinde Wiley, Frida Kahlo, Bisa Butler, Yayoi Kusama, and more are viewed as students discuss the different parts of a portrait. They will learn about realism, abstraction, proportions, and more to create colorful and whimsical images of themselves or someone else.
Medium options: Watercolor or Collage
Give us a theme and a MOCHA teaching artist will develop 2 custom projects for your party, (3 weeks notice needed for custom projects).
