Open Studio is temporarily closed due to COVID-19. 

MOCHA has recently moved to a new location. We are located in the Lower Level of Oakland City Center plaza, Suite 49. If you enter via the Clorox building from Broadway, you will need to go down the escalator in the lobby, go back outside and turn left. MOCHA is located on the left hand side of the lower level of the plaza. Our address is below.

Museum of Children’s Art

Once again, we have transformed our open studio space! Open Studio 2.o is the expansion of MOCHA’s creative philosophy of providing structures and frameworks for artists of all ages to explore, play and create.

Every month we will introduce new themes while incorporating the elements of art to projects that are designed to engage a child’s curiosity on a path to discovery.
