CIA’s Faculty: Learn from Successful Artists

At the Cleveland Institute of Art, our 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio ensures that you have regular, meaningful contact with faculty members who are accomplished professionals in their fields. In their own practices, CIA's studio faculty are engaged in regional, national and international arenas. They have created films for Pixar and Disney, made giant inflatable sculptures for national art exhibitions, and have shown their work in galleries and museums around the world.

Students richly benefit from the global perspectives of our accomplished Liberal Arts faculty, who are art historians, authors, researchers, and scholars of the humanities.
