Ryan Little

 “I believe that finding one’s creative self is an essential part of our life path. CATC has given me the opportunity to share this with the most important members of society, our youth.”


Ryan Little began teaching digital multi-media at CATC in 2008. With an extensive background in fine art and graphic design, Ryan has worked in many capacities in both fields. After studying graphic design at the University of Cincinnati, he has worked as a graphic designer, gallery manager, curator, art consultant, preparator, framer and printmaker.

In 2006 Ryan co-founded the design firm and creative group Able Projects. While building the design agency from the ground up he has helped to establish a vast and diverse client list. Providing services in all fields of design, Able Projects is also heavily involved in community and educational outreach programs. In addition to teaching and running a creative group, he also is an exhibiting mixed media artist whose work has been published and shown extensively.
