Continuing Education + Community

CIA’s Continuing Education and Community Outreach (CECO) program offers dynamic art and design classes through unique course content and access to high quality faculty and facilities. Each semester we serve adults and students in grades 5-12 by helping each individual learn new techniques or improve on existing skills.

Our courses take place on Cleveland’s east side at the campus of Cleveland Institute of Art. Our Fall 2017 catalog is now available, and we've updated our online registration system to make it easier to sign up!

  • Adult classes beginning the week of September 18 (Enrollment deadline: Tuesday, September 5)
  • Young Artists classes start September 23 (Enrollment deadline: Tuesday, September 5)
  • Life Drawing runs May 24 - August 9, and again from August 30 - November 15 (No registration required, pay at the door)
  • Next Teacher Workshops will be Saturday, October 21 (Enrollment deadline: Monday, October 9)

Each semester we offer dozens of courses approved for CEU credits. Take a look at our latest catalog or check our online listing of classes for descriptions, instructor bios and more. Please contact us if you have any questions.
