Designed for MOCA Cleveland’s youngest art lovers, this program is about playing and creating. MOCA educators lead open-ended and fun activities that help preschoolers learn about color, line, shapes, and textures. Preschool Playdates occur before the Museum opens to the public, allowing kids and their caregivers to explore the Museum on their own terms in creative and unexpected ways.
