CIA’s Engaged Practice: Getting Real-Life Experience CIA believes in the value of direct experience. CIA’s Engaged Practice commitment ensures that every student who graduates has a portfolio of experience gained through working on real projects with external partners or clients. These opportunities allow you to put your classroom and studio knowledge to work in a professional setting while still being guided by faculty. You’ll learn what it takes to meet clients’ expectations, and you will emerge with confidence that will serve you as you launch your career. CIA believes this is so critical to your success that we introduced Engaged Practice into the curriculum. Students earn Engaged Practice credits through internships or by taking one or more of the 40 dedicated Engaged Practice courses across our majors.

Clockwise from top: CIA students worked with director Paul Schrader and actor Nicolas Cage on the film Dog Eat Dog. Student Mallory Chavez took part in a photo shoot with celebrity chef Michael Symon as part of her internship with Taxel Image Group. A course called Environment, Art and Engaged Practice took students to the Cleveland Metroparks to research, make work, and interact with the public.

The Career Center Can Help You Succeed Sometimes the only thing between you and a dream job or key internship is a small detail: a great cover letter, a personal introduction, or a tweaked resume. That’s where the CIA Career Center comes in. The center offers resume reviews, mock-interview practice, and tips on using LinkedIn most effectively. You’ll also gain techniques for networking with CIA’s vast community of alumni, many of whom themselves have had internships and jobs at top organizations in the U.S. and abroad. The center also communicates regularly with hundreds of companies looking for talent, enabling CIA artists and designers to learn about positions that might not even be posted.

Visiting Artists Bring Their Worlds to You Learning takes place in dozens of ways at CIA, including through visits by artists and designers at the top of their fields. From internationally known studio artists and crafts people to illustrators and animators working on feature films, CIA welcomes professionals who lay the groundwork for the next generation of artists—you. Each fall and spring semester, the staff of CIA’s Reinberger Gallery offers Lunch on Fridays, a free lecture-and-lunch series featuring artists from all disciplines. In addition, CIA’s world-class faculty of working artists arrange visits by peers in their field, who share their practices and experience in workshops, lectures, and one-on-one studio visits.

Work in Your Own Studio Creativity requires inspiration, the freedom to explore, and resources to manufacture what your mind imagines. That all starts with your immediate environment. At the Cleveland Institute of Art, students have their own studios from their sophomore year until graduation. These are well-lit, well-equipped areas designed to both maximize your personal productivity and invite valuable communication between you, your professors, and other students. From your personal studio, you’re just a few minutes’ walk to our shared fabrication studios, digital print center and computer labs. Our library has collections curated specifically for the artist and designer. And all of this exists under one roof in our George Gund building, just a few steps away from our freshman and sophomore residence halls.

Make Work in Studios that Lie Beyond Campus On any given day, CIA students might be sketching at Cleveland Botanical Garden, observing and illustrating surgery at University Hospitals, or conducting research at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. They might be analyzing original works of art at the Cleveland Museum of Art, creating a performance piece with Cleveland Public Theater, or using a laser cutter at Case Western Reserve University’s think[box] maker facility. Some will be touring museum storage rooms in New York City, and others might be studying abroad. These opportunities are much more than field trips. As artists and designers, our work requires us to interact with others in galleries, production facilities, and manufacturing companies. Getting outside the studio helps you network, learn to research, and interact so that you can create the work you want to make.

Clockwise from top: CIA students have access to the Sears think[box] maker space at Case Western Reserve University; the Cleveland Botanical Garden and its rain forest exhibition; tours with local creative companies such as Kalman & Pabst Photo Group; and international art treasures at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Uptown: Meet Your Home in Cleveland Your first years of college present a lot of changes. Living on campus gives you a sense of community, opportunities to collaborate with classmates, and more time to commit to work. First-and second-year students live on campus in CIA-owned housing. Living on campus for your first two years eases the transition for many of moving away from home while learning the necessary skills of living on your own. And it allows you more time to focus on your classes and making art. First-year students live in our Uptown Residence Hall. Designed in consultation with students, these two-bedroom suites house two students per bedroom, each with their own bath. The two bedrooms are connected by a common work area and kitchenette. Uptown’s six floors feature lounge areas, a cardio space, onsite printing, free laundry, and three outdoor decks with views of MOCA Cleveland and downtown Cleveland. Second-year students live in Euclid 117, our new hall featuring four-person suites with individual bedrooms, two-person suites, and singles for students with special needs.

CIA residence halls were thoughtfully designed with input from students, taking both privacy and community into consideration. Our Uptown hall, for freshmen, and brand new Euclid 117 building each have workout areas, laundry rooms with free washer-dryer access, and proximity to a host of neighborhood restaurants.

Student Yu-Hsin Chou: Jewelry + Metals Yu-Hsin Chou is from Taipei, Taiwan. At CIA she goes by Audrey, a name she selected from a list offered by her English teacher back home. How did you decide to come to CIA? When I was in high school I was thinking of coming to the United States, and started to research online to see what kind of school had the major I wanted. I saw Professor Matthew Hollern’s video talking about how they’re working in the jewelry department, and how they combine digital technology with fine art and hand making. In high school, I was already learning how to use RHINO, and I wanted to combine it into my work, and I thought this is what CIA does. What do you want to do after college? I want to be a jewelry designer and also an artist. I can make my own products, but I can also make a production line. At CIA, I combine design things with art jewelry, so that art jewelry IS design, not just fine art. What surprised you about coming to school at CIA? The professors are nice and they’re incredible. They support you a lot and they give you a lot of thought and experience and they tell you how you can develop your ideas. And the studio is really nice. I can sit in my studio and calm down and sketch my ideas and OK, I’m ready to go and work.

Student Ryan Laganson: Interior Architecture “My experience while attending the Cleveland Institute of Art has been diverse, to say the very least. I have trained in traditional wood and stone sculpture ... and had an internship at StudioTechne, an amazing architectural and design firm a block away from CIA. “I have received two student-funded project grants. My first consisted of a large-format camera with an internal CNC system and a specific wavelength light meter for reading collodion exposures. The second project consisted of researching ways of mass producing custom lithophanes. “I am working with Case Western Reserve University’s IP Venture Clinic to develop a startup, Lemori, that will provide a more sentimental way of displaying cherished photographs by turning them into lithophanes. “I’m discovering how integral science and mathematics can be to my discipline. Before coming to CIA, I never would have thought about using approaches to those disciplines in the realm of art.”

CIA Grad Finds His Passion and Purpose Brian Peterson works as a senior interior designer at Kia Motors in Irvine, California. But he never forgot what Painting faculty member Lane Cooper told him before he committed to an Industrial Design major: that he would return, in some way, to painting. “Design is my passion,” Peterson said. “I love sketching. I love rendering and I love working with clay modelers. I love seeing the car come alive.” On the other side of passion, he said, is purpose. He found his purpose in 2016, when he began to make portraits of his homeless neighbors so they could see themselves as he saw them. He has made more than 25 portraits, including a couple with five children, who were living in a Chevrolet Suburban. His nonprofit project, Faces of Santa Ana, raises funds that go toward helping the subjects of his paintings in a variety of ways. cia.edu/brian-peterson Brian Peterson Left to Right KIA Motors, Car Interior Faces of Santa Ana KIA Motors Student sketch while at CIA

Game Design faculty: Robert Brown Growing up in Cleveland, Robert Brown spent a lot of time at the window. He had other passions: martial arts, acting, video games and, of course, drawing, which became an interest the moment his artist mother first set her 5-year-old son in front of a piece of paper and handed him a crayon. Yet something always got him to turn away from the Kung Fu magazines, movies, gaming console or drawings and run toward the window. “What really excited me were tornadoes,” Brown says. “A cloud actually coming out of the sky and touching the ground. It’s magic. It’s a concrete form of magic.” He filled drawing pads with pictures of tornadoes plunging from the sky. Eventually, Brown discovered he could mix his love of adventure with his skills in narrative art by becoming a game designer. He is chair of CIA’s Game Design Department. cia.edu/robert-brown
