Inside Out/Outside In celebrates the 5th year of CMA’s school partnerships and community programs with works created by the community. In the classroom, Teaching Artists introduce children and their teachers to artwork by contemporary and master artists, different processes and art-making techniques, and new forms of creative self-expression.
Viewed in its totality, Inside Out/ Outside In offers a composite of NYC neighborhoods and an emerging generation of art enthusiasts. Each collaborative piece reflects the unique energy of the participating program and their diverse communities while showcasing the vision of these young artists. In addition, CMA services the community with needs-based community programs by providing an inclusive artistic environment for children and families regardless of means, to create, learn about and benefit from art in a recreational setting.
These programs include RESTART, (an initiative for families in transitional housing), Stripes, (an initiative for kids on the autism spectrum), Inclusive Weekend Classes, and ARTogether, (a program designed for families to bond through art) as well as working with teen moms through the Arts to LYFE program, The Young Arts Kollective (YAK) and free summer programs (Free Art Island, Outpost, Pier Pop-Up).
