Lower Manhattan Arts Academy

At Lower Manhattan Arts Academy (LoMA) the visual and performing arts are integral to every student’s day. Students have opportunities to work with visual and performing artists during academic classes to create high quality, standards-based performances of learning. Each student can specialize in visual art, music, dance, or drama. Our partnership with LoMA comprises in-depth programs and workshops with Whitney artists and educators.
