TEACHER workshops

Reconnect with your artistic side and develop new techniques and perspectives that you can take back to the classroom. Cleveland Institute of Art's TEACHER workshops are led by professional artists and designers.

Earn CEU credits, network with other art educators, and enhance your skills in digital arts, craft, design, and fine arts. TEACHER workshops take place one Saturday in the fall and spring of each academic year.

Educators believe in TEACHER workshops

"The class on pastel completely transformed the way I teach pastel in the classroom.”
Carol Stephenson, Middle School Art Teacher, Hathaway Brown School

"This program energizes me to go back into the classroom. I believe every teacher should do this. It shows students that you can learn constantly, and learning doesn’t stop at high school. I display each certificate I receive."
Jan McAndrew, Art Teacher, Lakewood High School
