Come join us on Wed., February 8 and 15, 2012 from 4:15 pm to 7:00 pm as we examine paintings and other objects from the collections of The Cleveland Museum of Art to develop descriptive, and comparison / contrast paragraphs. Focusing on American art and using art terminology, we’ll be guided through the process of writing about masterworks in order to build these skills with middle and high school students.
The museum will host an innovative dialogue on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 to explore how Cleveland can benefit from China’s emergence as one of the world’s leading economies. A distinguished panel of regional and national business, academic, journalism, and government leaders whose organizations have significant ties with China will offer insights for The Art of Reinvention: China, Ohio, and the New Global Economy.
Two museums. Three hours. 14 teachers. Lots of rocks. On Saturday, August 6, teachers from around the region learned how to integrate the collections of the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History into their curricula in our Geology of Art workshop.

The exhibition CLE OP: Cleveland Op Art Pioneers opens on April 9 to celebrate the work of several Cleveland artists who contributed to the abstract art movement that surged in the 1960s. Op Art (short for optical art) applies the art of visual illusion and perception to dazzle the eye of visitors through unique compositions that combine bold colors, dynamic patterns, geometric shapes and lines.
