Students at IS 068K are eager to begin their self portrait projects!

A few eighth graders are interested in applying to NYC's premier visual and performing arts school, LaGuardia High School. Luckily for them, a self portrait is often part of the entrance portfolio requirement, so our students already have a head start.

As for the others, they simply enjoyed the act of drawing.

It’s spring in New York City, which means CMA’s Artist Instructors are hard at work in public schools across the boroughs teaching fine arts and stop-motion animation to students who lack access to the arts otherwise. Learn how you can support these programs by donating to CMA’s Emergency Arts Education Fund.
