Cleveland Updates
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.

In fall 2020, resumed 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.
