About Us

When you invest in KCAI you support a community of students, faculty and alumni who are committed to transforming the world creatively through art and design.

At KCAI, we prepare students to think differently, find solutions, and be original in an increasingly universal, fast paced world. Our curriculum starts in Foundations, where students learn how to learn. They spend the next three years studying under prominent faculty who guide their studio practice and scholarship through real-world experience and industry opportunities.  

 KCAI has been educating artists since 1885. All artists. Which is why your investment is critical. It’s how we attract talent from all walks of life. It’s how we stay on top of trends and technology. And it’s how we provide the tools necessary for success.
