One Stop Arts Shop

The Greater Cincinnati Alliance for Arts Education (GCAAE), working with the Strive Partnership and KnowledgeWorks, launched in August 2014 an online directory of arts education programs and artists in the Greater Cincinnati area. The “One Stop Arts Shop” includes information for parents, teachers, students, and organizations looking for arts education programs, resources, and opportunities. The directory is searchable by art form, subject area, grade level, location, type of program, and includes contact information. The online directory is made possible with grants from ArtsWave and the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. /U.S. Bank Foundation.

The Greater Cincinnati Alliance for Arts Education (GCAAE) is a collaborative of organizations and individuals, and supports and fosters the arts as a vital component of education through advocacy, professional development, and integrated arts experiences for students, teachers, and other professionals. The GCAAE partners with the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education, the Kennedy Center’s Alliance of Arts Education Network, and Americans for the Arts.



About OAAE

Since our founding in 1974, by Dr. Dick Shoup and Jerry Tollifson, our mission has always been to ensure the arts are an integral part of the education of every Ohioan. Working at the local, state, and federal levels through the efforts of a highly qualified and elected Board of Directors, our members, and a professional staff we have four primary areas of focus: building collaborations, professional development, advocacy, and capacity building. The OAAE is funded in part for its day-to-day operation by the Ohio Arts Council. This support makes it possible for the OAAE to operate its office in Columbus and to work statewide to ensure the arts are an integral part of the education of every Ohioan. Support for arts education projects comes from the Ohio Arts Council, Ohio Music Education Association, Ohio Art Education Association, Ohio Educational Theatre Association, VSA Ohio, and OhioDance. The Community Arts Education programs of Central Ohio are financially assisted by the Franklin County Board of Commissioners and the Greater Columbus Arts Council. We gratefully acknowledge and appreciate the financial support received from each of these outstanding agencies and organizations.
