Do what you love

Our courses for adults and young artists cover a wide range of processes and mediums, and can accommodate all skill levels. Through in-person programming our community can access state-of-the-art technology and equipment, including ceramics and metal studios, digital labs, and more. Our online courses allow students to learn from the comfort of their home. No matter what type of class you take, you’ll get a unique and in-depth learning experience from our instructors, who are practicing artists and designers, and often faculty here at CIA. 

Evening classes for adults take place once a week for an eight-week session. Young Artist classes are held on Saturdays for eight weeks during the spring and fall semesters, and are Monday through Friday during the summer for two weeks.
