Studio Institute–Cleveland
Discovery-based learning. Programs for students, pre-K through college.
Customized visual arts programming and professional development.


Studio Institute–Cleveland has partnered with two Pre-K–8th grade elementary schools, where professional artists are implementing a visual arts curriculum that provides rich, discovery-based art experiences for students and helps build competencies that are essential for learning in other disciplines.

Local professional artists work closely with school staff and faculty, providing professional development, mentoring, and direct instruction. Students develop skills by working like an artist—exploring media, making choices, and looking closely at artwork to learn how to communicate visually.

Contact us to learn how our Cleveland-based professional artists can support your Pre-K–8th grade educators.

Join a roster of Cleveland artists committed to teaching and learning!  Studio is looking to employ local visual artists for paid, part-time artist instructor positions to teach children Pre-K through Grade 8.
