Tri-C Creative Arts Center of Excellence
Turn your passion into your profession. Tri-C’s Creative Arts Center of Excellence offers a world of opportunity for degree-seeking students and those interested in exploring the arts. Whether you have a love of music, visual design, studio art, interior design, photography, dance, film, theatre, media arts or journalism, Tri-C has a program to help you gain skills and find a career.
Creative Arts classes are offered at many campus locations, with the hub of our program at the Gill and Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts at the Metropolitan Campus. The Center for Creative Arts houses media arts, recording arts and performing arts studios, animation and music technology labs, and dance and theatre studios.
The building also houses the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame library and archives, and presents cultural showcases like Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland. These serve as great resources for students to develop their skills, and help bring national attention and visitors to our city.
