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.

Community Education is excited to announce our Pop-up Workshop Series—one day classes that are sure to pack in the excitement!
First up is small scale metal casting with Instructor Richard Fruth. This workshop is an introduction to small scale casting using cuttlefish bones & delft clay. Both methods use minimum equipment and provide immediate results. Using the backbone of a cuttlefish as a mold, students will carve into the soft bone to create a form to cast into. Bronze is then melted and poured into the cuttlefish bone mold. The resulting positive reveals unique and interesting textures provided by the cuttlefish bone. Next the class focuses on casting bronze into Delft clay. Delft clay is a reusable molding material that provides quick results and helps to retain intricate details without the use of expensive equipment. Check out the video below.
