Cincinnati Family Magazine's Biz 4 Families Art Instruction profile for 2022 features ArtsConnect!


At ArtsConnect, we believe that the arts connect us. The arts empower us and enrich our lives, providing meaning and accomplishment. We have made it our goal to provide a platform for creative exploration to artists of all ages, offering a full curriculum of arts programming at our newly-renovated arts center in Springfield Township.

Our facility is specifically designed to provide state-of-the-art working spaces for the arts, including a full pottery studio, woodshop, metalsmithing, a mobile cooking cart, an art gallery, and plenty of well-designed classroom spaces. ArtsConnect isn’t just a center for established artists either. Our curriculum, designed for pre-schoolers through senior adults, is driven by more than 50 art educators. In addition to classes and camps, ArtsConnect facilitates art experiences through public art displays and an average of 25 arts related events per year.

ArtsConnect recognizes that artists need a place to grow and studio space isn’t a possibility for everyone, which is why we have designed an open studio program offering artists access to our studios throughout the year for ongoing projects. We offer a fully equipped woodshop and a pottery studio with eight wheels. Studio passes provide access during regular Arts Center hours outside of classes. Open studio times are also available during certain days of the week in an art room for woodcarving, stained glass, and all-media art.

It is an exciting time to get involved at ArtsConnect. This year, we were voted Best Arts & Crafts Classes in the Greater Cincinnati Family Choice Awards, and our award-winning kids’ Art Camp has earned accreditation by the American Camp Association every year since 2017.

If you have not experienced an ArtsConnect program, we invite you to join us in the creativity. You do not need to be a resident or a member to participate. All are welcome. We look forward to making art with you soon!
