We are watching COVID-19 recommendations
The Eastern Iowa Arts Academy, like all of Cedar Rapids’ beloved community organizations, is doing its best to gather reliable information from the CDC (www.cdc.gov), and the Iowa Department of Public Health (www.idph.iowa.gov) in response to COVID-19. We are following the lead of the Cedar Rapids Community School District and College Community School District and monitoring their decisions. Now that school has been suspended for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, EIAA will not be offering any in-person programming. We have opened EIAA’s Virtual Classroom where there are lots of fun opportunities to keep your creativity flowing.
