is the only not-for-profit community school for the arts in Lower Manhattan. Located in Tribeca since 1990, we are an arts center where students of all ages share art and music experiences together. We specialize in helping each individual find their unique creative voice.
“Students who have had the opportunity to grow and thrive in an environment that supports curiosity, discovery, and creative expression have more self-confidence. They are more self-aware. This may be the most important gift we can give them in this complex and ever changing world.”
—Dr. Lisa Ecklund-Flores, CSSMA Founder & Director
