This popular program serves hundreds of students each year with free art classes on Thursdays from 3-4pm at both North Miami Public Library and Brockway Memorial Library. Guided by a professional artist, teens learn about contemporary art through engaging classes and hands-on art-making experiences.
Partnering with Housing and Social Services, MOCA provides monthly hands-on art workshops at the Sunkist Grove Community Center and the opportunity for tours at MOCA. Classes are held in three languages, English, Spanish and Kreyol.
Students at W.J. Bryan can receive 40+ hours of training in transferable skills including public speaking, communication, critical thinking, leadership, self-esteem, and career readiness, using MOCA's exhibitions as subject matter. The training culminates in a W.J. Bryan Family Day at the museum with student-led discussions and tours of the exhibitions for parents, friends and teachers.
