The Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design is a professional art school based in the Historic Third Ward district of Milwaukee. MIAD provides students their own studio space starting sophomore year. The most popular majors are graphic design, illustration and studio arts. MIAD offers study abroad programs in places such as Italy, Ireland, Thailand, and China.
A very focused and disciplined school for it's unruly subject: art. In the first semester you already get an idea of what you will move onto in the following years to come. Your time is not wasted and there is so much to learn at MIAD! There is not a day that goes by that students here are not improving in some way and your self expression is something that is your most important tool.

Very small and intimate school. Everyone I met there was really helpful with the admissions process. Portfolio review was very insightful!
