Doing your best work and having the courage to share it with the world can be empowering and rewarding. Pride, confidence, and scholarships — this is what the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have been delivering to artists since 1923. This year, the Art Academy of Cincinnati is proud to produce the awards for our region, which will be held on our campus in historic Over-the-Rhine.
It was at this time last year (around March) that I took my first tour of the school. I had my mind set on going to Cincinnati State to be a firefighter, and nothing else was even an option. My mom and high school art teacher urged me to visit the school just to see if I’d interested. I came on a tour of the school and absolutely fell in love.
