The Baltimore Academy of Illustration (BAI) is an unaccredited, private institution with one goal in mind: to teach artists who want to be illustrators how to become illustrators. Unlike traditional art schools, BAI focuses specifically on illustration. BAI offers students of all economic levels the opportunity to receive high-quality, college-level instruction. We welcome adult continuing education students, high school students who want to sample college-level illustration courses, and traditional college-age students. BAI instructors are working illustrators and experienced educators with a variety of complementary experiences and teaching philosophies. A main tenet of BAI instruction is preparation for professional illustration work by offering challenging assignments and critiques, along with practical knowledge to forge a career in illustration.
Enrollment for the spring 2016 semester is open now. Sign up for BAI’s newsletter for upcoming events and announcements. You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
