Support CMA: Why Art Matters

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.
