Teen Art Force

Tune in Tuesdays at 4pm for Virtual Teen Art Force classes. MOCA’s Curator of Education, Amanda Covach, will lead our Drawing & Portfolio class. Celebrate the everyday and learn to draw a still-life using graphite or charcoal, a great addition to anyone’s portfolio. Registered and new students are welcome.​

We stand in solidarity with our communities and with those who seek reform. The June 2nd class has been moved to tomorrow at the same time. #blackouttuesday

MOCA Teen Art Force is a series of free art classes for teens ages 13–17. They run Monday- Friday from 4–6pm. MOCA Teen Art Force students also complete service projects, attend free field trips to fellow art institutions, and have the opportunity to showcase their work at MOCA.
