Alina's Animal Mask!

Remember Alina, the standout artist from Noormah Jamal's fifth grade class at Children's Workshop School? She found an extra face mask in the classroom and crafted her very own animal mask!

The details were exquisite — she glued sheer fabric over the eyeholes and painted them in lifelike detail. The choice of fabric allowed the wearer to see through the mask.

Alina is also a master of miniature. She created a tiny doll by glueing together two pieces of felt-like fabric paper. Inside, she included a small wire amataure so the doll can move, pose, and even sit down!

Noormah’s work at Children’s Workshop School is supported by the Emergency Arts Education Fund, which provides free arts education to NYC school communities whose art programs have been decimated by recent budget cuts.

Children’s Museum of the Arts’ three Residents Artists are currently implementing ambitious arts curriculum at each of our partner sites throughout New York City: Hudson Guild in Chelsea, Sid Miller Academy in Crown Heights, and Children’s Workshop School in the East Village. Come spring, our residents will showcase their students' work through exhibitions and installations across the city. Learn how you can support the work of our residents here.
