La MaMa Kids

La MaMa Kids is a series of creative workshops and performances for the young and the young at heart. Master artists from La MaMa perform family friendly shows and teach theatre crafts in workshops that encourage imaginative play and hands-on learning. Children and adults learn the basics of storytelling, dance, mask, puppet-making, and more! Fun for the whole family!
This La MaMa Kids season we invited young artists to offer or create illustrations for our Kids flyer. The first round of flyers features work by Sasa Yung who is a 9th grader in the Visual Art Studio at La Guardia HS for Music & Art and Performing Arts. While at Manhattan School for Children/PS 333 she was a member of the Junior National Honor Society, studied at Rhode Island School of Design summer programs, and read her poetry at La MaMa Kids and La MaMa Moves, as well as for a CultureHub telematic exchange with Nipissing First Nation artists in the Aanmitaagzi Company. Once upon a time, she danced at Dance Theater Workshop, Mt. Holyoke and Smith Colleges. She primarily works with anime-based aesthetics in ink, pencil and watercolor.
