Lola_turtle_MOCA2016Young artists explore the museum grounds and galleries observing and creating a portfolio of 2-dimensional works on paper, cardboard, collage and canvas. Each week includes an art demonstration covering techniques with a variety of artist tools; drawing pencils, charcoal, pen and ink, watercolor, tempera, resist painting as well as mono prints. Additionally each young artist is given the opportunity to discover more about his or her creative interests by exploring their own ideas.

October 8 to November 19
Saturdays, 1 – 3:30pm
Ages 9-12

Saturday in the Studio gives young artists the opportunity to design and create their own artwork from start to finish. Students will be guided through concept development to the creation of their two or three-dimensional works of art. Young artists will seek inspiration from the works on display in the museum galleries and through their own individual research. Problem solving is supported so that students may successfully complete their artistic vision.

 Adult Media Blend Studio:


Media Blend is a weekly 2.5 hour get-away that allows time for participants to explore new materials with just enough guidance that magic happens…yes it does!

Join our small group and gift yourself with a time out. Explore working with a variety of new blends of media while you discover your current voice and direction. Spend contemplative time with works by MOCA exhibiting artists in the main gallery.

Each week in the studio encourages experimentation and direction that feels most expansive and bold.

Come renew and enrich your creative process.
