All About Alina!

Dispatches from CMA Resident Artist Noormah Jamal's fifth grade class at Children's Workshop School.

Alina is an exceptionally talented student at Children’s Workshop School. She often expands upon Noormah’s assignments at home and brings in her work to show off her progress. 

As a native Russian speaker who is just learning English, Alina impressed us with a handwritten note (in English!) asking Noormah to select options for a sculpture that she would make for her. 

She also took home her animal cloud project (a capybara) and stained the foam and gave it additional detail. 

Round of applause for Alina! She inspires us everyday.

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.
