The mission of the Childrena??s Museum of the Arts is to introduce children and their families to the transformative power of the arts by providing opportunities to make art side-by-side with working artists. Since its founding in New York City in 1988, CMA has worked to actively engage children and their families with the arts through family-friendly art exhibitions and hands-on art workshops led by trained, professional Teaching Artists. CMA strives to provide arts programming for all children, particularly those whose needs are not being met at home, school, or by other local organizations. CMA serves children between the ages of 1 and 15 and their families, drawing patrons from across the tri-State area, as well as national and international visitors. In its 2,000 square foot gallery space, CMA organizes four curated exhibitions each year featuring emerging and established artists. These exhibitions are the inspiration for guided visits from school and community groups led by professional artists who serve as Teaching Artists, who also lead ever-changing hands-on art workshops in nearby studio spaces that incorporate a variety of artistic media. Through single-session group visits and sequential school partnerships, CMA serves over 150 schools locally, as well as thousands more children who take part in Museum classes and camps. Though general museum visitors may never see them, community programs are also a vital component of CMAa??s mission to extend the benefits of the arts among all children. These services provide resources for some of New York Citya??s most vulnerable audiences, all offered at no cost, including children in foster care or who are homeless, children on the autism spectrum and those with physical disabilities, and under-resourced a??tweensa?? (very few programs are offered for NYC middle school students). In total, CMA serves over 110,000 children and their families each year, including nearly 27,000 through free activities.
