We’re changing the landscape of arts education in NYC by placing artists directly in schools that need it most.

Get a behind-the-scenes look at CMA Artist in Residence Noormah Jamal’s fifth grade class at Children’s Workshop School, where students have been learning foundational art techniques including composition, shading, perspective, color, tint, and shade.

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.
