Education & Community Programs
Since its inception in 1995, the Cincinnati Arts Association’s (CAA) Education and Community Programs have reached more than 1.3 million Tri-state students and have promoted learning through the arts by developing opportunities that are diverse, multi-disciplinary, and accessible to all ages and cultural groups. Through projects with artists, arts organizations and cultural institutions, CAA promotes the arts as an integral part of our community.
The Overture Awards recognizes, encourages and rewards excellence in the arts among Tri-state students in grades 9-12. Its mission is to encourage arts education as an integral part of a student’s academic experience and to create an environment that encourages training in, and appreciation of, the arts.
CAA also presents special programs on an as need basis, often in collaboration with other organizations. The Student Art Show has been an annual event since 2003.
BDAAC is a committed group of citizens illustrating diversity from within the community that acts as an advisor to and ambassador for the Cincinnati Arts Association. BDAAC’s purpose is to assist CAA in addressing the programming, service and cultural needs of Greater Cincinnati’s diverse communities.
The Cincinnati Arts Association is a member of the Greater Cincinnati Alliance for Arts Education (GCAAE), which supports and fosters the arts as a vital component of education in the Greater Cincinnati region, through advocacy, professional development and integrated arts experiences for students, teachers, and other professionals.
