Extended classroom

CIA's Cores + Connections extend instruction far beyond the CIA campus classroom. We can't really think of another art education institution that is so well-positioned among world-class colleges/universities, museums/galleries, parks/gardens, hospitals, major partners in industry, and a rich diversity of neighborhood organizations. 

Attend CIA, and experience a whole world of "living" classrooms!

On any given day, CIA students may be observing and illustrating surgery at University Hospitals, sketching in the Glasshouse at Cleveland Botanical Garden, touring behind-the-scenes workings of New York galleries, conducting research at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, analyzing original works of art at the Cleveland Museum of Art, or studying abroad. 

 

Our connections are your connections

Our connections are your connections

At CIA, you’ll work in an engaging learning environment with world-class faculty, who will connect you with the real world of art and design.
