Welcome to Continuing Education on myCIA

***July 20, 2020: In response to ongoing concern about the coronavirus, and upon recommendations from Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine to all colleges statewide, the Cleveland Institute of Art is moving fall Continuing Education courses to an online platform in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Click here for more information.***

Hello and welcome to Continuing Education at CIA! Each semester we serve educators, adults, and students in grades 5-12 by helping each individual learn new techniques or improve on existing skills.

This section of myCIA is for anyone interested in our classes, workshops and intensives. On these pages students can submit a registration and download important forms and documents. To find more details about our individual programs, visit our main website.

Registration is closed. Please check back for our spring listing in November.

If you are a parent or guardian of a young artist, you can find important information and resources in this portal. Here are some things you may be looking for:
