MOCA Family Weekend

MOCA Family Weekend is a monthly series that takes place on the first full weekend of every month. These weekends offer family-focused programming that encourages engagement and play, as well as free admission on TD Community Sunday. Each month’s activities highlight a different exhibition, artist, or artwork for families to engage with.

Family Saturdays

Family Saturdays feature hour-long artist-run workshops at 1 pm and 3 pm. These workshops focus on specific art-making techniques and are developed by MOCA’s exhibiting artists and/or local artists who work with similar themes and materials. These workshops require registration at a fee of $5 per person.* Each workshop is followed by a child-centered exhibition tour at 2 pm and 4 pm. 

*MOCA Members at the Individual level and above can access these workshops for free.
