Our mission is to introduce children to the transformative power of the arts by providing opportunities to make art side-by-side with working artists.
At CMA, we give all children and families access to the creative tools that promote self-expression and esteem through the visual and performing arts. We honor the artist in every child through hands-on art programs taught by trained, working artists; through our on-going collection and exhibition of children's art; and through partnerships with diverse community organizations that celebrate life and the arts in New York City.
In the Fall of 2011 CMA relocated to 103 Charlton which is three times the size of their old space at 182 Lafayette street. To learn more about a day CMA, visit our website: http://www.cmany.org/visit-us/a-day-at-cma/.
CMA's new space allows thousands more children to have access to our programs each year. To learn more or to give to the capital campaign, visit http://cmany.org/campaign
