ID Students Give Back to the Community

CIA works with Cleveland Museum of Art to introduce art + design to high school students.

ID Students Give Back to the Community

Forty high school seniors from area high schools worked with CIA industrial design students to design and construct hamster habitats as part of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Museum Ambassador Program.

The Ambassador Program aims to attract teenagers to the museum in an effort to educate and encourage their ongoing relationship with the arts. CIA’s workshop theme was “How do you communicate visually?” To explore this idea, six groups created a living space for the ID department’s pet hamster Jeff Waffle. Before constructing the habitats using Masonite, wood scraps, old vinyl records, packing materials and foam, the students researched the habitat needs for hamsters. Once their research was complete, each group constructed their portion of the larger habitat.

Teens are exposed to the museum environment and trained to be both ambassadors and volunteers for the arts in their communities. Students who have been with the program for two years, have the opportunity to visit other art and culture organizations around University Circle and bring their experience back to the program. CIA is one of many University Circle programming partners to coordinate workshops for the students.

Schools that participated in the workshop were Bedford, CASTLE, John Hay, Shaker Heights, Strongsville and Valley Forge High Schools and Cleveland School of the Arts.
