Established in 2006, The Cliffside Artists Collaborative collects, preserves, presents and promotes the work of visual and performing artists in Northern Ohio for the enrichment and education of its citizens and the global community.


The CAC provides ongoing educational programs in the visual and performing arts for children and adults. The CAC works closely with local schools to develop an innovative program in art awareness, in which the CAC acquaints students and teachers with various aspects of art in their environment, as well as how to express this awareness in various forms such as works of art and musical performances.


The CAC has held numerous educational conferences and seminars for other non-profit entities, including the Brunswick, Highland and Wadsworth School Districts. An emphasis is placed on student enrichment along side curriculum planning for art activities.
