Summer Teacher Residency

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cleveland Institute of Art began plans for maintaining a healthy environment upon our community’s return to campus this fall. We are continuing to work in partnership and consultation with the office of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, University Hospitals of Cleveland, Case Western Reserve University, the Cuyahoga County Health Department, the City of Cleveland, and the Centers for Disease Control.

 At this time, we plan to run the Summer Teacher Residency in 2021 with the health and safety measures that CIA put in place to reopen in August. The current measures include mandatory face masks inside the building; modified facilities and studio spaces to address social distancing; increased building sanitization and safety mechanisms; reduced classroom and lab capacities; and health monitoring including daily temperature checks and COVID-19 pre-screening assessments. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 and move forward with the residency program only if it is safe to do so. In the event that we need to cancel the program, residents will receive a full refund.

Imagine ten days, away from the classroom, away from the distractions of life, back in the studio making work.

Through our Summer Teacher Residency, CIA brings together a diverse group of dedicated professionals for an unforgettable time of creativity and collegiality. You'll join a select group of art educators from across the country as you create a new body of studio work, and reinvigorate your teaching practice.

While on campus, residents are provided individual studio spaces, art-making supplies, and access to CIA's state-of-the-art facilities. A spirit of collaboration and community allows for regular feedback and input from your residency cohort, guided by our faculty advisors.

Program

As a resident artist-educator you will develop a new, personal body of work with the support of an instructor in the studio. You’ll work independently, meet with a mentor for conceptual and material development, and participate in group critiques to enrich your practice. Professional development seminars are scheduled with partner institutions to enhance art room curriculum. At the end of the program, you’ll showcase the work created during your ten days at CIA in a group exhibition.

The 2021 residency takes place from June 16 to June 26, 2021, and will be open to educators interested in several disciplines, divided into three courses exploring the areas of:

  • 2D Processes, including drawing, painting and printmaking.
  • Contemporary Craft, including ceramics, glass and jewelry and metals.
  • Digital Art + Photography, including video, digital prints, and digital photography
