Family Involvement

Teachers know how important family involvement is to students' success. MOCA provides free, quarterly studio art workshops to help students share their growing excitement about art. Contemporary Art Start (CAS) students receive free family passes at the time of their first of two guided museum visits.

All CAS students receive these after their first visit of the year, enabling them to bring their families to MOCA unlimited times during the year.

All ages are welcome at these quarterly programs, which include looking at work in the museum and then creating a related project designed and taught by a local artist and MOCA's amazing Sunday Studio teaching team.

In addition to traditional Sunday Studio activities, Big Family Day includes tours and activities in the galleries led by specially nominated Contemporary Art Start students.
