Employer Profile: The Baltimore Academy of Illustration, Baltimore, MD

Mission Statement

The Baltimore Academy of Illustration offers students of all economic levels the opportunity to receive high-quality, college-level instruction in illustration.

BAI welcomes 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—challenging assignments and critiques along with practical knowledge to forge a career in illustration.

Overview

The Baltimore Academy of Illustration is an unaccredited, private institution with one goal in mind: to teach artists who want to be illustrators how to become illustrators. Our hands-on approach and small classes allow us to tailor our courses to meet each student’s needs. Unlike traditional art schools, the Baltimore Academy of Illustration focuses specifically on illustration—learning the art while also understanding the needs and requirements of the profession.

Our teachers are working illustrators who have also taught illustration at the college level.  We offer our classes at a fraction of the cost of a 3-credit art college course and while we don’t hand out diplomas at the Baltimore Academy of Illustration, we believe we have something much more important to give our students: knowledge and experience. Art directors don’t ask to see diplomas. They ask to see portfolios.

We believe that an immersive, well-rounded education in a quality art college is the best route for becoming a professional artist. But we also recognize that many talented artists just cannot afford to invest in a four-year program. We offer the same quality instruction. Our students won’t get the degree but they will get the knowledge they need to compete in the marketplace. We believe that our approach represents a new paradigm in teaching illustration.
