Art Camp


MOCA Studio School is summer ready! Check out our Virtual and In-person Summer Camp offerings here!



Pay by cash, check or credit card. MOCA accepts MasterCard Visa, and Discover. A $35 fee is charged for all returned checks.


It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to record course start dates. Once registered Art Campers do NOT receive a confirmation, but will receive a reminder email the week before the start of each camp. In the unlikely event that a course is cancelled, you will be notified as soon as possible.

Registration Deadline

Registration deadline is 5pm seven days prior to the course start date.


Refunds are only available if a course is cancelled by MOCA due to low enrollment. Art Campers cancelling enrollment before the registration deadline will receive a tuition credit voucher, which may only be applied to another class at MOCA. No tuition credits will be given after the registration deadline, no exceptions.

Lunch Bunch/ Snack Policy

Art Campers may attend morning courses, afternoon courses or both for a full day of Art Camp. Those registered for the full day should bring a non-perishable lunch, drink and snack and will be supervised by museum staff during a 30-minute lunch break. Students registered for one class in the morning or afternoon may also bring a non-sugary snack/drink if desired. Snack and lunch foods containing peanuts or peanut products are not permitted at MOCA for the safety of all Art Campers.


Financial aid scholarships are available thanks to The Cohen Family Memorial Fund. You can also email or call the education department at (757) 425.0000 x.338 for more information.
