A Frugal Momma Providing a Rich Childhood

$2 off MOCHA admission for costume wearers

I don’t think I have posted about MOCHA (museum of children’s art) before because it doesn’t fall into my free or cheap category ordinarily. It is an amazing place in downtown Oakland! On Friday and Saturday they have open studios from 10-1 which means you pay $7 for yourself and for your kid to do a variety of different art projects. It is great, I would say, for two year olds and older.

Tomorrow and Saturday if you come in costume you get $2 off. The theme of the projects will be Day of the Dead. What a great way to celebrate this rainy weekend! Here’s more info from MOCHA’s website:

Open Studio
Create, explore and discover in our drop-in studio space!
Open Studio is a space where artists of all ages create, share and connect through art. At MOCHA we believe that art and art-making is for everyone and we have designed our Open Studio to operate under this philosophy. You and your child are free to explore whatever captivates your interest and the teaching artist will always be available to help you locate materials, provide technical instruction, and suggest age appropriate activities.

See more photos from Open Studio in our gallery.

DAYS & TIMES
Friday & Saturday
10:00am – 1:00pm
