KOKO is an after school program for kids aged 5 -14 years old. We offer a variety of creative workshops.
KOKO is about seeing and doing with an emphasis on ideas over technique. We believe the only bad ideas are the ones that go unexplored. The ultimate goal is to encourage visual thinking as a means of self-expression. Kids will come up with projects and discuss whether to use photography, woodworking, painting, sculpture, etc., to best convey their ideas. We will instruct and supervise the children in a variety of techniques and media to facilitate the completion of their projects. The museum, gallery, and studio visits serve as inspiration.

All tool use is done under strict adult supervision and instruction, the children are free to make “art” in any way they see fit. We offer encouragement, guidance and context.
