Strengthening in-depth conceptual knowledge in visual arts, the drawing discipline at the Cleveland Institute of Art explores a wide range of materials, tools and techniques. The goal of this major is to define the student’s aesthetic identity as an artist and working traditionally and unconventionally. The curriculum of the department allows students to historical and cultural works of drawing, individual studio practice and style. The drawing department values the idea of communication through drawing, learning to draw from observation, ideation and experimentation.

Upon graduation, a degree in Drawing opens jobs for graduates as senior concept artists, studio artist, illustrator, graphic novelist, and gallerists. Students are taught by pulling from other visual art fields such as printmaking, painting, fiber and material studies and sculpture. The department prides in creating professional portfolios, grant-writing skills, and proper etiquette for successfully approaching collectors, dealers and curators. Every Spring the drawing department takes a trip to New York City and visits the Whitney Biennial and The Armory Show.
