NEXT: Living Art + Design

November 20, 2015

NEXT is the Cleveland Institute of Art's high school program that introduces the professional world of art and design to high school and transfer students who are interested in pursuing a career in the visual arts.

This day-long event is designed to help your students answer their questions about pursuing a career in art or design: How do I become a creative director, fine artist, illustrator, or a product designer? Is there job security? Where can I get a job?

At NEXT you and your students will:

  • Meet and ask questions of art and design professionals at the NEXT Panel Discussion
  • Learn what resources are available to young artists and designers in University Circle
  • Understand that there are successful careers in the visual arts

NEXT is an interdisciplinary program that addresses numerous career paths and professional fields including:

Cuyahoga Arts and Culture
