Year-round KCAI offers programs to foster youth art development and creativity for those 6 to 14 years old. We focus our classes on skill development and fun. During the summer we offer week-long ARTventure camps in a wide spectrum of mediums ranging from computer animation to photography to drawing. See our current offerings.

ARTventure Summer camps

Every summer KCAI offers a series of weekly ARTventure camp programs for youth ages 6-14. The program is designed so students may come in the morning only, afternoon only or all day. Our classes are designed to be part skill building, part creativity and part fun. Offerings change each year but some examples are traditional animation, fashion design, drawing faces and figures, experimental photography and more. Register for class now!

Artist in Training certificate

The School for Continuing and Professional Studies wants to encourage our younger students that pursue art training. We offer a free Artist in Training certificate from Kansas City Art Institute when a student completes two "FUNdamentals" or "Fundamentals" and three classes of their choice.
