The MOCHA Artists in Residency program provides weekly, hands-on visual arts education for all TK-5 students at RISE Community School. Through partnerships between teaching-artists and classroom teachers, this year-long program is integrated with the topics being taught in the classroom. By planning the lessons with the classroom teachers, the visual art lesson plan is tied to the core curriculum, integrating the arts education into the school’s science, social studies and language arts curricula– encouraging visual art as a teaching tool. MOCHA works to provide students with a comprehensive experience of visual arts mediums and maximum opportunities for hands-on art-making.
