Adult Distance Learning

Distance Learning for adult audiences at the Cleveland Museum of Art allows lifelong learners to connect with the CMA and enrich their studies of history and the visual arts through our collection of art and artifacts from around the world.

Annual Lecture Series

Supported by our generous sponsors, the Cleveland Museum of Art hosts a variety of annual lectures that feature a range of topics.

Artist in the Atrium

Every third Saturday of the month, stop by the Ames Family Atrium between 12:00 and 4:00 p.m. to get a firsthand look at the art-making process. Each session will provide you the opportunity to engage and interact with a different Northeast Ohio maker during pop-up demonstrations and activities. See their work unfold and learn how artists create.

Desktop Dialogues

Listen as curators, educators, community leaders, artists, and others offer new ways to look at and understand artworks, special exhibitions, and museum-specific issues.

Lunchtime Lecture

Come to the CMA for a quick bite of art history. Every first Tuesday of each month, join curators, conservators, scholars, and other museum staff for 30-minute talks on objects currently on display in the museum galleries.

Art to Go

Bring a one-of-a-kind learning experience and authentic artworks from around the globe and across time into your school, library, community center, or educational space. Art to Go participants use multiple senses as they practice close observation and learn how to carefully handle art objects and artifacts from the museum’s education art collection.

Studio Programs for Teens and Adults

Join experienced practicing artists in our studios to play with ideas and materials while developing skills and techniques. All skill levels are welcome.
