At the Art Academy of Cincinnati, you will gain the technical skills and critical thinking abilities that will fuel your work with relentless, impactful creativity.
Many art schools have defined programs and career tracks. They ask you to decide your path before you even begin. We believe that you don’t have to know who you are on day one. Here, we’ll provide personalized support as you figure out your direction, and then we’ll stand aside so you can truly shine.
You want to learn how to use your art effectively – yet stay true to who you really are. Our community is committed to providing guidance and resources for rebellious young creatives.
Inspired to try everything? Our interdisciplinary approach means that you can experiment with an education as inventive as you are.
Every industry requires good art and design. We also know the path to becoming an in-demand creative is not clear. That’s why we designed the Art Academy of Cincinnati to be an affordable place where you’ll learn the practical skills you need to make art work for you.
We lead diverse groups of talented artists towards engaging, productive careers. Together, our educators and students have established a vibrant community celebrating the power of art and design since 1869. Here, students gain the problem-solving skills and practical design techniques that will make them career-ready after graduation.
