Program Highlights:

As part of the Cleveland Foundation's Creative Fusion Program, The Center for Arts Engaged Learning welcomed Chilean paper artist Carolina Illanes. During her residency, Carolina worked with students at Metro Catholic High School and taught them techniques used in making pop-up books. She taught paper engineering to the education staff of the Cleveland Museum of Art and teachers from her host organization, and worked with more than 400 Cleveland residents–children and adults–as part of the Art Museum’s Second Sunday Family Day in the Museum’s Grand Atrium. Carolina was inspired by Cleveland architecture and also had the benefit of working with a commercial laser cutter while in Cleveland.
