School Closings

Our calendar year differs from area school systems; therefore, we are not always closed on school holidays. Please refer to the FAA calendar in this brochure. If The Fine Arts Association is closed due to poor weather conditions or emergency situations, closing information can be found on Channels 3, 5, 8, 19, 23, 25 and 43, and on most FM radio stations. You can also call us at 440-951-7500 two hours prior to your class/lesson. The opening phone greeting will indicate if The Fine Arts Association is closed. Closings will also be posted on our website (fineartsassociation.org) and our Facebook page as soon as they are decided.
