The School for Continuing and Professional Studies offers several opportunities for art educators.
The annual Educators ArtLab, which will take place Sunday, July 21 through Friday, July 26, 2013, is a chance to get back to a college campus setting to revitalize your mind and refresh your thinking.
ArtLab is free to high school art educators and includes on-campus housing, meals and materials as well as visits and receptions at local art museums and galleries. While the program is free for those selected to attend, transportation to and from Kansas City is the responsibility of each educator. Only those serious about attending if chosen should apply.
This one-week residency is limited to 30 people and applications are due Friday, March 8. Applicants will be notified of acceptance the first week of April.
Two graduate level credits are available for the program at a cost of $250. When completing the online application, applicants will choose one of the following studio options:

KCAI offers graduate level courses in the fall, spring and summer. Tuition is $250 per course and each course counts as two graduate level hours.
Area art teachers interested in enhancing their curriculum will benefit from the weekend format of the classes, which typically are held Friday evening and all day Saturday and Sunday.
Courses are non-cumulative and will not transfer to a master's degree program. Their intent and purpose is to help teachers meet criteria for re-certification and to provide professional development.
KCAI has been approved as a continuing education provider through the Cooperating School Districts of Greater Kansas City. View course listings or enroll here.
Additional work after each class is required and due to the instructor three weeks after each course ends. Transcripts can be ordered online here. There is a $5 processing fee per transcript.
Many art educators make our graduate level classes a weekend getaway. Below is information on hotel accommodations.
