You won’t go into an internship or professional practice without a plan. Sophomore workshops are our newest initiative to help second-year students get ready for their first steps into the professional world. You will learn what to expect of an internship — and what will be expected of you. Then you practice building a resume that is clean and concise and captures attention. Finally, you learn how to match your skills with the right job opportunities. Each of these steps gives you an edge when vying for the internship you want the most.

Access Alumni Events is a program offered to KCAI students through the AACS. Each year a group of alumni are chosen to sit on a jury panel who then are charged with reviewing student work and choosing students to participate in the annual AAE exhibition. Throughout the process of selecting artists and artwork, alumni jurors conduct studio visits and provide critique and networking opportunities for students.
The 2012-2013 AAE alumni jurors are Jonah Criswell ('05 painting), Ari Fish ('06 ceramics), Bobby Howsare ('09 printmaking), Marie McInerny ('02 fiber) and Davin Watne ('94 painting).
The 2012-2013 exhibition will be on view in February 2013 at Cara y Cabezas Contemporary, 1714 Holmes St. Reception information and details coming soon.

In addition to the annual exhibition, AAE includes workshops and events to further extend networking opportunities with alumni to current KCAI students. For more information about Access Alumni Events, contact Calder Kamin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
