Youth

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 summer camps in a wide spectrum of arts ranging from computer animation to photography to drawing. See our current offerings.

Summer camps

Every summer KCAI offers a series of weekly summer 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 digital photography, drawing people, computer animation and more. Need-based scholarships are available for summer camps. An application is required and must be postmarked by April 11, 2014 for consideration.
