Give us a theme and a MOCHA teaching artist will develop 3 custom projects for your party, (3 weeks notice needed for custom projects). Please book at least 2 weeks in advance of your event. Full payments are due to confirm registration. Please feel free to email MOCHA (firstname.lastname@example.org) to consult with Nia Moten.
In the event of a cancellation, MOCHA will retain a $25 administrative fee and offer a credit. If the cancellation is within 2 weeks of the party date, no credit will be given. We only offer credits (no refunds are allowed). You can consider converting your art party into a virtual event. The event can be recorded and available for download. Check-out our Virtual Programs page for more information.
MOCHA is a revolving space housing many programs. Therefore walls and artwork fluctuate and may change from the time of your booking to the scheduled event day. MOCHA staff will always work with you to best suit your specific needs during your party.
