From Artist to Entrepreneur

[SlideDeck2 id=1851]

Not every school can say they have someone teaching for them that not only is an amazing Instructor, but also a successful entrepreneur; enter Sarah Francis Hollis. She has been teaching with the Art Academy of Cincinnati’s B.F.A and Community Education Departments for the last five years. This past year Sarah has put her artistic talents to the test by starting a wedding business with a twist—Romance and Rebellion LLC.

Inspired by her own Day of the Dead themed wedding, Romance and Rebellion creates handmade, non-traditional, edgy wedding décor. If you have a wedding you’d like to make unique, visit Sarah’s Etsy shop.

Sarah will be teaching Figure Drawing for the Community Education Department at our new satellite location, the Sharonville Fine Arts Center. Be on the lookout for exact dates and times in our fall brochure.
