Continuing Education . Overview
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 existing skills.
Our courses for adults and young artists cover a wide range of processes and mediums, and can accomodate all skill levels. Evening classes for adults take place once a week for an eight-week session. Young Artist's classes are held on Saturdays during the spring and fall semesters for eight weeks, and are Monday through Friday during the summer for two weeks.
Along with serving the community, Continuing Education has multiple educator-focused programs, including our teacher workshops and the Summer Teacher Residency. Through CECO, the Cleveland Institute of Art acts as the regional affiliate for the Greater Cleveland Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, hosting adjudication, exhibition and ceremony each year for Cuyahoga, Lake, and Geauga Counties.
Our fall registration is open through Friday, August 23. Evening classes for adults begin the week of September 9, and Saturday young artist's classes begin on September 14. View our current catalog here, or download a PDF version.
