Art Academy of Cincinnati

Art Academy of Cincinnati

It’s time to cross the line and enter a world where the ingenious and the rebellious come to play. Where the relentless and the radiant find better ways to work and create. Where the cutting-edge become the celebrated and the radicals teach the fundamentals. 

Located in Over-the-Rhine, AAC is at the heart of an active and vibrant culture — one that drives curiosity and passion and is filled with inspiration and opportunity. Tap into the movement and experience everything our community has to offer aspiring artists.

Make Art, Make a Difference

An integrated education, our BFA is a fusion of fine art studio practices and liberal arts experiences all through a contemporary lens. You are given the freedom to explore your own individual artistic expression and to cultivate your own voice and vision. We’re here to urge you forward, to challenge set norms and traditions and give your creativity life.

Our faculty are a collective of diehard creatives. Art and design is their belief system. It’s not just their job; it’s who they are. With an 8:1 student-faculty ratio, you will receive individualized attention to develop your personal vision in a small tight-knit community of artists where everyone knows your name. 

With our for-credit internship experience, you will be able to explore various creative pursuits ranging from the small, independent print shops, galleries and museums, to the dynamic design agencies and Fortune 500 companies.  
Visit the Art Academy during an Open House, September 16, November 18, February 17, April 7 or at National Portfolio Day, October 7.
