Welcome to the MOCA's Studio School. Courses take place in our award-winning facility where the Museum has a built-in Studio School space devoted specifically to hands-on artmaking purposes. Adults, teens and children have the opportunity to explore drawing, painting, ceramics, digital photography, mixed media, fine crafts and more. All courses are taught by professional regional artists and educators and take place throughout the day into the evening hours, as well as at the weekend. After-school and Saturday courses are also offered for children and teens as well as spring-break and summer Art Camp. REGISTER ONLINE!

MOCA also offers Master Classes that introduce participants to a visiting artist featured in the Museum's exhibitions. During these sessions, artists present their work to the group and lead them through a hands-on project that relates to their practice. This is a fabulous way for participants to have one-on-one interaction with esteemed contemporary artists. In the past the Museum has featured Hank Murta Adams, Kanishka Raja, Yuken Teruya, Adia Millett, Glen McClure, Elizabeth Huey and more.
