The Maryland Institute College of Art was established in 1826 and is one of the oldest visual arts colleges in the nation. The program at MICA combines studio skills with writing and a liberal arts education. MICA is listed among the “Best Northeastern” colleges according to The Princeton Review and has enrolled more Presidential Scholars in the Visual Arts than any university in the US. The most popular majors at this selective institution are graphic design, illustration, and painting.
MICA is an amazing school with the best teachers in the country. I can pursue my dreams of becoming an art teacher here in a state-of-the-art program. MICA has granted me many opportunities, like volunteering, and having a studio space, for helping me get involved in the community and creating art.

Amazing staff and classes at MICA you learn a lot, from students and teachers especially in your first year there. I don't think any other school can compare in MICA's foundation year and the amount that you can learn about art and yourself. This is a place to grow and build connections best school I could ask to attend.
