Best Space for the Budding Artist 

The Museum of Children's Art

MOCHA is an art haven for kids and harried parents. Families can come on a drop-in basis at $7 a pop and stay all day, or join as members and get free drop-in all year. There's always something to spark the inner artist, whether it's a big blob of homemade play dough or blank canvases (okay, just sheets of paper) on the painting wall. Plus, there are rotating arts and crafts, like hatmaking or printmaking using salad spinners. The best part? Parents don't have to worry about setup — or cleanup. For the wary kids, there are bins of toys to keep them busy or a playhouse with play food, until they decide to pick up that paintbrush. The center recently celebrated its twenty-year birthday with a big outdoor bash. The staff is nice and its location is also convenient, close to the 12th Street/Downtown Oakland BART station.
