If you are interested in helping to get the word out about art and art classes, we would love to hear from you. We are looking to expand awareness of our classes, gallery shows, and other programming, beyond our ongoing social media posts and email marketing. One of our biggest needs right now is to help get our events placed in local and regional print media as well as to get events listed in online community/event calendars, art calendars, and children's activity calendars. When members of the public go looking for something to do, we want them to find the Peninsula Art Academy!
The Peninsula Art Academy (PAA) is a popular place for locals and tourists to visit and take classes. Since it is close to the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, there is a steady stream of visitors before the train is loaded and when people get off. There are times when the Academy has a real party atmosphere -- full of visitors, artists, students and generally interesting people. There are also lulls that allow quiet time. A benefit to volunteers who are artists is the possibility (pending juried approval) of displaying their work and making new friends.

Mission of the Peninsula Art Academy:` To promote the advancement of the arts in Northeast Ohio and the Village of Peninsula by providing instruction in the arts. Our instruction and educational programs will be non-accredited and not-for-profit; we seek to provide facilities, instruction and peer critique to member artists and crafts persons in disciplines not commonly offered from other regional educational institutions. Through unique lectures, workshops, shows, instructional classes, rentals, lending library, visiting artists, working studios and retail gallery, the Peninsula Art Academy will differentiate our products and services from other educational institutions by implementing unique curriculum, education and business methodologies.
About the Peninsula Art Academy:
Located in the popular Village of Peninsula's Historic District, Peninsula Art Academy includes a fine art gallery and exhibit hall, performing arts stage, working artist studios and meeting space. We are within walking distance from the Cuyahoga Valley National Park Towpath Trailhead, CVSR Railway Depot, and many other shops, galleries and attractions. Offering working artist studios including blown and fused glass, and the Fiber C.A.F.E. (Center for Alternative Fiber Experience).
In June 2000, Steve Craig and Matt Kubinyl organized a plan for establishing a non-profit art academy in Peninsula, Ohio to promote the arts, combining the natural and cultural benefits of Peninsula, and to use regional artists to serve as staff faculty and other nationally prominent artists as visiting instructors and speakers. Further, the Peninsula Art Academy was created to promote a cultural venue where artists and craftsmen come to learn and create fine art.
