Baltimore Academy of Illustration Founded by Working Artists


The Baltimore Academy of Illustration (BAI) is “a new concept on the Baltimore art/education scene”.

Founded by illustrators Alex Fine, Jonathon Scott Fuqua, and Greg Houston, BAI seeks to provide
students of all economic levels the opportunity to receive high-quality, college-level instruction in
illustration for a fraction of the cost of a 4-year university.

The Baltimore Academy of Illustration is an unaccredited, private institution with one goal in mind: to
teach artists who want to illustrate how to do so. The instructors’ hands-on approach and small classes allow them to tailor the courses to meet each student’s needs.

“In the end, publishing houses, art directors, and art departments don’t ask to see diplomas. They ask
to see portfolios. Even after four years at an accredited college, a student’s illustration is all that

Baltimore Academy of Illustration seeks to change the paradigm for art/education in Baltimore, and we’re excited to see how this promising concept develops.
