A Typical Day

Experience life as an art and design student

Whether you come from California or Cleveland, you'll have the opportunity to live and work with other students who are passionate about art on our beautiful campus.

During your two or four weeks at CIA, you'll work intensively in an area of your choice to refine your skills and try new techniques. Our rigorous curriculum matches that of full-time students, so you know you’re getting the most out of your stay. Here’s what a typical day would look like for a Pre-College student:


8am: Breakfast
9am: Studio Class (Commuters arrive)
12pm: Lunch
1pm: Studio Class
4pm: Open Studio
5pm: Dinner
6pm: Evening Studio (Commuters depart at 9pm)
10pm: Rest and Repeat!

NOTE: All class and studio time is mandatory

On weekends there will be personal time in the mornings and required afternoon and evening studio time, as well as scheduled activities and presentations.

Commuter students follow the same schedule as residential students, with the exception that they will leave campus to go home after evening studio ends. Meals are provided for commuters, and they will also attend scheduled activities and presentations.
