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


In 2019, we initiated our partnership with the Cleveland Metropolitan Schools District (CMSD), supporting arts residencies in two Pre-K–8 elementary schools during the 2019–20 school year.

This fall, we were pleased to resume our programs at Clara E. Westropp Elementary for the 2020–21 school year, with Studio artist instructor John Kim leading Zoom classes for students in grades 3–6. In mid-December, John assembled and distributed 345 Studio Institute art kits so that students could continue creating art during the holiday break.

In February, we will be introducing a new observational drawing program that will be available virtually to Cleveland high school students. During four after-school sessions, students will build core skills, learning new techniques and approaches to drawing using traditional materials.

I was respected as a professional…the work I was given was no different than what my supervisor would give to a full-time employee.
