The Ohio Alliance for Arts Education exists to ensure that the arts are an integral part of the education of every Ohioan. Founded in 1974, OAAE brings together parents, educators, community leaders, arts and education organizations, and concerned citizens in a statewide network to plan and implement programs and activities that address state and local issues surrounding arts education.

Your membership support makes the development of resources and sharing of information possible through the weekly Arts on Line newsletter, web resources, professional development workshops, educational consulting, and communication with policy-makers at the local and state levels. Membership in OAAE provides you access to resources, up-to-the minute updates and action alerts on arts and education related issues, and a network of professional colleagues from which to share information. 

Thank you for making our work possible!
