CAMP @ MOCA

DISCOVERY & INSPIRATION DURING SCHOOL BREAKS

MOCA Jacksonville offers spring camp, summer camp, and winter camp, providing kids the chance to dive into the art, artists, and ideas of our time. Children make new friends and learn art techniques in a variety of media through hands-on learning in a fun and engaging environment. Time is spent exploring exhibitions in the galleries and creating in the studios. With the guidance of skilled museum educators, learners are empowered to problem solve through critical thinking, observation, and creative self-expression.
