Virtual Educator's Retreat - Saturday, December 5

A series of workshops and activities designed to give educators a break from the classroom and enjoy a day of creativity and well-being.

Are you burnt out from managing the classroom? The Cleveland Institute of Art would like to invite you for a day of de-stressing, where you can be the student again from the comfort of your home. Grab a warm drink and some simple supplies and join us for a virtual educator’s retreat!

The virtual retreat costs $25, which covers the entire day of activities. Educators may select as many sessions as they’d like to attend. A sign up form will be sent to you once we receive payment. Please note that you’ll need a computer, phone, or tablet with access to the internet to participate. You’ll also need to supply your own materials, but don’t worry—many of these items can be found right at home or at a low cost from Blick Art Supplies.

Download the brochure to find out more. Sign up online at my.cia.ed. Registration is open through Wednesday, December 2. 

Teacher Workshops - Saturday, April 17

Reconnect with your artistic side and develop new techniques and perspectives that you can take back to the "virtual" classroom.

Earn .6 CEUs or one graduate workshop credit. Each workshop is $50; one graduate workshop credit is available for $140 through Ursuline College. An additional assignment is required.

Participants will need access to a computer, phone, or tablet, and an internet connection, and be prepared to acquire their own supplies for these workshops. Supply lists will be emailed after you've registered.

“I’ve always believed that the CIA workshops are the BEST VALUE—the benefit far exceeds the price. That’s why I keep coming back. There are projects I learned over a dacade ago that I still teach and have become anchors in my courses.”

“Beth Hoag was an incredibly engaging and knowledgable teacher…very impressive. Before her class, I knew nothing about these early cultures and came away inspired and stimulated by the extensive overview she supplied.”
