The Ojai Academy for the Arts is a California non-profit organization that is dedicated to the education and empowerment of artists as they evolve on their path towards full self-expression. We are planning a robust schedule of classes, workshops, retreats and galleries for artists and aspiring artists, as well as business and infrastructure support.  We are fully engaged with the both the local community and the broader community, providing venues for learning, performance and display of artistic expression.


The Ojai Academy for the Arts’ “Virtual Campus” brings together the classrooms, studios, galleries and performance venues of the Ojai Valley, making them known and available to teachers, students and arts organizations throughout the Valley.


We are always interested in exchanging ideas with our community.  Please feel free to join our mailing list to stay up-to-date -- join us in bringing art education, exploration, expression and experience to our inclusive and welcoming community.
