Columbus Landmarks Building Arts Studio at
Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center
We are proud to announce the return of the Columbus Landmarks Building Arts Studio at Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center. Fort Hayes is part of Columbus City Schools and includes an Arts & Academic High School and Career Center on the historic 1862 military campus near downtown Columbus.
Working with students enrolled in Fort Hayes’ Construction Management Program, the Building Arts Studio brings hands-on preservation education and training to the curriculum, preparing students for careers in the high-demand historic building trades. The classes take place in the c1890s gatehouse located at the main entrance of the Fort Hayes campus on Jack Gibbs Boulevard. Students will make headway on the restoration and rehabilitation of this visible, campus gateway that has been vacant for decades.
The Columbus Landmarks Building Arts Studio is made possible with help from our generous partners the Ann Sherry Foundation, Greater Columbus Arts Council and Blind Eye Restoration.
We are honored to lead this unique public education opportunity not available anywhere else in U.S. Our goal is to create a knowledgeable and skilled workforce to meet local demand while improving the Fort Hayes campus for future generations.
