Come see an Art Show that is for Artists, organized by Artists in support of Future Artists! The 6th Annual Autumn Air Art Fair is a fabulous fundraising event that raises much needed scholarship funds for Art Academy of Cincinnati BFA students and Community Education students.
Art Academy of Cincinnati Community Education Department (AAC CE) would like to thank the following foundations for their contribution to the SmartArt program: Pfau Foundation, Luther Charitable Foundation, Chemed Foundation and the Dater Foundation.
The AAC CE SmartArt program serves as a powerful, creative tool to reinforce Common Core standards. Focused on higher-order thinking and problem solving skills, AAC SmartArt Program complements current classroom instruction by integrating an artistic approach to support the academic curricula.
Research shows that involvement in the Arts fortifies academics, raises test scores, and cultivates greater aspiration in employment and civic responsibility (Catterall, 2009: College Board, 2011).
Let us come to you! The Visual Art Outreach Program, funded by Procter & Gamble is now seeking applications for the 2014-15 school year.
The program sends artists and art educators from the Art Academy of Cincinnati’s Community Education Department to Cincinnati Public School classrooms, where they present hands-on art lessons that integrate classroom curriculum to empower children to learn more effectively while encouraging a life of creativity!
Any Cincinnati Public classroom is eligible to participate in the program at no cost to them. For more information about how your student’s classroom can participate in the Visual Art Outreach Program, please call Community Education at 513.562.8748 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also apply online.
It’s easy, fun and free!

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.
