The Academy

What is the Barcelona Academy of Art?

The Barcelona Academy of Art is a high-performance specialised centre dedicated to the
professional teaching of drawing, painting, sculpture and digital art.

 

With a comprehensive curriculum and teaching methods derived from the classical tradition and the precepts of realism, the BAA offers its students work plans based on the methods of the great academic studios of the 19th century. The painters Jean-León Gérôme, León Bonnat and Carolus-Duran, whose revised philosophy and teaching methods are integrated into the BAA, are figures of reference, emphasising the importance of the direct study of nature and the analysis of historical masters.

The BAA system has a very clear and effective teaching style. The basis of all disciplines and courses focuses on the crucial importance of drawing and educating the eye. Students will advance through planned exercises that will give them the skills necessary to represent what they see through figurative language.

The method-based process of acquiring skills is used, as the student will find resources to channel his or her own sensitivities, ideas and concerns.

Who’s it for?

The BAA trains students who want to become professionals in the arts of drawing, painting, sculpture and digital art: it trains artists who, after understanding the traditional methods and techniques, will be able to work in any creative atmosphere with first-class artistic skill and judgement.

The BAA offers a solid foundation for all types of artists, committing to discipline and rigour, guaranteeing maximum use of the expressive potential and effort of its students. The wealth of knowledge offered by the BAA is useful for more than just visual artists, since it offers valuable tools for the disciplines of design, digital illustration, the film industry or video game development.

Aims

To provide students with a  solid technical base  rooted in traditional methodologies, guaranteeing knowledge and mastery of resources, skills, materials and speeches suitable to maximize the development of an artistic identity..

To promote  rigour, discipline and perseverance . To forge a spirit of improvement in the pursuit of excellence through the BAA method.

To provide students with communication skills and practical resources to deal with the challenges of today’s artistic world in the best way, encouraging  critical thinking  and an attitude of active exploration of tradition and contemporary artistic production and its dynamics.

The Barcelona Academy of Art has a wide range of educational possibilities. Throughout the year the intensive programmes of Drawing – Painting, Drawing – Sculpture and Drawing – Digital Art are held, complemented by seminars, weekend classes and special Easter Break and Summer courses that help students to deepen and perfect specific aspects of the processes, approaches and techniques, hand in hand with the best professionals.

Once the programme of studies is completed, the Barcelona Academy of Art offers internal and external students the possibility of starting an advanced professionalisation process through the Barcelona Residency of Art. The students of this programme have a studio/workshop where they will receive the necessary knowledge and support to guarantee their entry and advancement in the art industry.

The Barcelona Academy of Art also offers the BAA Junior programme, in which young people can explore new ideas and concepts, at the same time receiving specialised quality training and acquiring graphic and fine arts skills.
