Sponsored Studio


Where business and art intersect

As part of the educational process we recognize the importance of preparing students for successful careers by providing them with hands-on experiences and enhanced training.  With this in mind, Sponsored Studio was created.

This initiative allows businesses to partner with KCAI for a fresh approach to research and development, for a new branding strategy, or perhaps a corporate art collection – each project is tailored to your needs and goals.

To ensure successful project completion each partner will work directly with our students and faculty during all phases of the project. Studio visits and production tours are important components that contribute to the success of the Sponsored Studio program. The projects must tie in with curriculum requirements and may be conducted as short-term or full semester activities. The fees will be determined by the amount of time and materials needed to complete the project.  You can view examples of successful Sponsored Studio projects HERE.

If you are interested in partnering with KCAI on a Sponsored Studio class, please complete the Partner With Us FORM. We will then contact you to schedule a time to discuss in more detail.
