Zine Making: Adventures in Carbon Paper

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

Students continued working on their zine projects. With their drafts behind them, they are ready to embark on their final zines! 

They loved flipping through example zines from Miriam Gallery, including publishers like Childish Books, Artistic Noise, Black Mass, and Terminal Ediciones

Carbon paper continues to be in high demand as many students are choosing to do narrative works with pop culture references.

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.
