CMA's digital classroom offers an equalizing gateway that goes beyond our immediate physical location to create a worldwide community that crosses location, language, and income levels. Distance learning provides CMA the opportunity to reach more families, serving more students nationally and internationally, and helping meet families where they are, no matter their physical location or finances.
Making art is more than just a pleasant activity — art can play a role in developing a child’s confidence, awareness, and expression. Young artists learn to value their individuality and the identity that they express through their art. Collaborative art projects encourage children to develop their language and social skills, conflict resolution, and their sense of community. And making art as a family increases parent-child bonds and provides parents a change from the standard role of disciplinarian. Your commitment to CMA is a commitment to joy!
The best way to ensure year-round access to arts education for children throughout New York City is to commit to monthly donations.
CMA is committed to our corporate partners and offers membership opportunities at various levels that meet every need. Benefits include free admission to CMA, invitations to VIP events, discounts on CMA classes, and more.
CMA hosts benefit events throughout the year that support our work in the community.
The Artistic Director’s Circle is a group of art lovers whose annual membership of $1,000 provides entry to exclusive events, including 3-5 artist studio tours per year and VIP passes to various New York City art fairs.
Members of the Director's Salon have exclusive access to CMA, the Executive Director, and special programming. Annual membership of $5,000 grants entry to a series of intimately curated events with some of today's most thought-provoking leaders in the arts and education.
The CMA Contemporaries are the junior committee of the Children's Museum of the Arts. This group of young professionals, ages 21-40, is committed to volunteering their time, talents, and energy to help promote the Museum’s mission and to raise crucial funds for CMA’s free Community Programs.
Co-published by Dizzy Magazine and Children’s Museum of the Arts, Mishou Magazine highlights work by artists age 15 and younger, collaborations between generations, and interactive sections. Mishou acknowledges the importance of early childhood education and aims to validate children’s identities as individuals and artists.
