Over in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, CMA Resident Artist Niousha Kiarashi leads elementary school students at Sid Miller Academy in lessons in lines, mark-making, geometric shapes, texture, charcoal, perspective, and more.
As a District 75 school, Sid Miller Academy provides specialized support for students with disabilities and is celebrated for its involvement with community leaders and rich slate of multicultural programming.
Niousha’s work at Sid Miller Academy 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.
