Monday, June 19 - Wednesday, June 28, 2017
Cleveland Institute of Art seeks each year to bring together a diverse group of individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to art making and inquiry. We create the most stimulating and rigorous environment possible for a period of concentrated artistic creation, interaction and growth.
Located in University Circle, Cleveland’s cultural center, the campus serves as a critical component of the program. This residency draws its vitality from the community created through the talent and energy of the participants, and the distinguished faculty who provide support and critical assistance.
While on campus, residents are given individual studio spaces, art-making supplies relative to their proposal, and access to the school’s state-of-the-art facilities. Exclusive supplemental programming will allow for engagement with a broad array of educational and cultural resources.
To bring together visual art educators from around the globe in a supportive and stimulating environment in which to create a personal body of work. To engage in professional development to discuss current educational trends, provide curricular support, and establish best practices to engage in art education and art studio processes.
Resident artist-educators will develop new, personal bodies of work with the support of an instructor in the studio. Residents will work independently, meet with mentor(s) for conceptual and material development, and participate in group critiques to enrich the practice of fellow residents. Residents will partake in professional development together with partner institutions to enhance art room curriculum. An exhibition will be installed and a public opening held at CIA to celebrate the works created during the Summer Teacher Residency. Residents will reside in CIA’s Uptown Residence Hall throughout the program.
Residents will earn a total of 10 continuing education units for the program
Residents have the option to earn up to two graduate credits through our partnership with Kent State University. The requirements to obtain graduate credit are:
