Open Houses

Attend an Open House at the Cleveland Institute of Art and experience a day designed specifically for students and families interested in learning more about CIA. 

Tour our studios and classrooms. Speak with CIA students and see the work of current and former students. Meet with our admissions counselors and staff who can answer your questions about admission requirements and financial aid opportunities, and give you advice on preparing your portfolio.

Our fall and spring Open Houses fill up quickly, so register early. Our next Open House will take place in fall 2015. You can also contact us to schedule an individually tailored visit.
