The very first season of SchoolTime started in January of 1996 during the grand opening year of the Aronoff Center for the Arts.  For the past 25 years, the SchoolTime series has welcomed nearly 500,000 youth, teachers, and chaperones.  While the Covid-19 pandemic has caused us to re-imagine ways of 'doing,' the Cincinnati Arts Association was committed to ensuring our mission to educate, inspire, and serve through quality arts programs.

 

Thank you to all the educators that are committed to expanding the Classroom through the arts.  While we know nothing can replace 'live' performing arts or children visiting our venues, we hope you find the streaming performances, support materials, and options for synchronous or asynchronous learning supportive to your goals. This year's series gives you many opportunities to teach social justice.
