“You can make the change, you can live with the change, and everyone else is going to follow.” – Peter Sellars, artist, professor, and 2013 KCAI Commencement Speaker

Our graduates are the change agents. They provide leadership, ideas, and innovation in a changing world. They create, believe and challenge the status quo, while contributing to their communities and advancing art and design.

We are extremely proud of our accomplished alumni and the various fields they choose to work in. Whether your post-KCAI path took you to graduate school, to opening a business, working in industry, to academia, or to your own studio, we know you are forging your own path and defining your own success.

Of course, after you graduate from KCAI you don’t have to go far to find a thriving art scene.
