Sponsored Studio

As part of the educational process to prepare gifted students to transform the world creatively through art and design, we recognize the importance of providing students with hands-on experiences and enhanced training to prepare them for successful careers.  

With this in mind, we are launching the KCAI Sponsored Studio program. This new initiative provides opportunities for businesses to partner with the college to create unique educational experiences that also provide our business partners with a fresh approach to their long-range research and development challenges.
Through the Sponsored Studio program a company will be able to:
  • Gain access to our faculty and students who see the world with a unique perspective
  • Evaluate creative talent for internship and employment opportunities
  • Utilize cross promotional opportunities for public relations and marketing initiatives
  • Gain recognition as a patron of art and design education
To ensure successful project completion each sponsoring partner will work directly with our students and faculty during all phases of the project. Studio visits, production tours and off-site research are all important components that contribute to the success of the Sponsored Studio program. 
The projects must tie in with curriculum requirements and may be conducted as short-term projects or full semester activities. The fees associated with the project activity will be determined by the amount of time and materials needed to complete the project.
