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


Cleveland School Programs Overview
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.

During the current academic year, we have implemented long term and residency programs in four K–8 schools in the CMSD: Clara E. Westropp School of the Arts, Daniel E. Morgan, Mary B. Martin School, and Paul L. Dunbar School.

We have been recruiting and training new artist instructors, who are teaching on-site, and plan to expand our presence in Cleveland by implementing early childhood programming in 2022.

“The most impactful experience I had during this internship was talking to many conservators, getting a feel for what the field is like, and how to pursue it within graduate school… opening my eyes to the field of conservation science.”
