Let's Hang Out!

There is no better way to decide if the Art Academy of Cincinnati is right for you than to come visit us.

If you book a campus tour or shadow day (shadow a current student and sit in on classes), we will provide a letter to excuse your absence from school during your visit.

Visit the Art Academy of Cincinnati

There is no better way to decide if the Art Academy of Cincinnati is right for you than to come visit us.

Come experience how the desire to create reverberates throughout our building. Hear how it calls from our studios and echoes through our halls, and see where our students live, work and play. Our admissions team can give you an in-depth guided tour and, while you’re here, they can answer all your questions in person. Academics, financial aid, housing, transit, parking—we’ve got you covered.

The AAC is a collective of impassioned creatives at home in a vibrant community. Situated in historic Over-the-Rhine, our neighborhood provides a constant source of inspiration. AAC’s campus is a cultural cornerstone in our Greater Cincinnati community and a home base for our student’s creative pursuits. Get to know Over-the-Rhine first-hand and view our on-campus student lofts*.

There’s no better time to complete a portfolio review than during your visit. There’s power in your artwork, share it with us. Increase your chances of securing a merit-based scholarship by speaking with an Admissions Counselor one-on-one about your works and passion for making art.
