CIA's Coventry Center presents an exhibition of work by K?8 charter school students, along with work by their CIA student teachers.
Cleveland Institute of Art students taking an art education course gained real-world experience (and rock-star status in the eyes of some 285 children) when they taught weekly art lessons last semester.
The CIA students—including Alessandra Andaloro, pictured above—were enrolled in a course taught by Kristin Thompson-Smith ’09, a full-time art teacher at a separate elementary school. As requirement of Thompson-Smith’s course, Andaloro and her classmates each taught art lessons one day a week at Cleveland Community School or Villaview Community School, two charter schools that share a building in the heart of downtown.
Saul Ostrow, chair of CIA's Visual Arts and Technologies Environment, and former provost Nancy Stuart initiated the collaboration after Candace Williams, administrator at the two schools, appealed to colleges in the region for assistance with art instruction. "Given the success of the program and our students’ enthusiasm for it, the program will be offered again in the fall," Ostrow said.
Come see this semester’s results in an exhibition at CIA’s Visual Arts + Technologies Coventry Center. You’ll see painting, drawing, collage, watercolor, and more by these children. And you’ll also see work by their student teachers, who are juniors in the BFA program at the Cleveland Institute of Art.
