Open Studio

Create, explore and discover in our drop-in studio space!

Open Studio is a space where artists of all ages create, share and connect through art. At MOCHA we believe that art and art-making is for everyone and we have designed our Open Studio to operate under this philosophy. Artists are free to explore whatever captivates their interest and the MOCHA artist will always be available to help locate materials, provide technical instruction, and suggest age appropriate activities.
