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!
