BFA Programs

Main-BFA-Page-imageThe American Academy of Art has been educating professional artists in both the commercial and fine art fields since 1923.

We believe in the importance of forming a foundation in the classical academic tradition. The early coursework for our students focuses on developing essential skills not only in art technique, but also in the humanities and sciences. From this foundation, we encourage the development of creative and critical thinking that will allow students to use their foundational skills to communicate their own unique artistic ideals.
