La MaMa Kids

Fun for the whole family!

La MaMa Kids is a series of creative workshops and performances for the young and the young at heart. Master artists from LaMaMa teach theatre crafts in workshops that encourage imaginative play and hands-on learning. Children and adults learn the basics of storytelling, dance, mask and puppet-making, and more! Held monthly, La MaMa Kids is fun for the whole family!
This La MaMa Kids season we invited young artists to create illustrations for our Kids flyer. The second round of flyers features work by Dashiell del Barco. Dashiell del Barco is an 8th grade scholarship student at The Professional Children’s School in Manhattan. For the past 5 years, he has been the recipient of the Recanati-Kaplan scholarship for excellence in the arts while studying fine art under the guidance of 92nd Street Y’s esteemed Gilda and Henry Block School of the Arts faculty. Dashiell commits his imagination to paper with pen & ink. In oil, watercolor and clay, his heroes and villains come to life.
