Studio Spaces

As a CIA student, you will have your very own studio space from the moment you declare a major to the time you graduate. Cleveland Institute of Art is one of the only art and design schools that provide personal space to all students in a major – beginning in their sophomore year.

Feel free to fill it with whatever inspires you most—posters, paint, tools, a computer, magazine cut-outs, t-shirts, stuffed animals, pictures of friends and pets, chocolate—or nothing at all. Keep your space as clean or messy as you’d like. 

Your studio space also is a place where your instructors can view and critique your work, and where you can visit with your studio neighbors. Another huge benefit—you won’t have to carry your materials back and forth between home and school. You can store all your supplies right here in your own studio space.

Besides individual studio space, you will have access to group studio areas designed for your specific major, and where your department proudly displays student work. 

What do CIA students love about their Studio Space?
