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 BASIC/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. BASIC/TEACHER workshops take place one Saturday in the fall and spring of each academic year, and one 2-day experience during the summer.

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
