Warwick Society

Would you enjoy seeing inside the world of art and design? KCAI's Warwick Society allows its members to get "up close and personal" with top artists and designers in the area and across the country.

The group takes exciting trips to popular art destinations nationally and internationally. Meet and see the work of some of our most talented students, many of whom will go on to define the future of contemporary art and design in this country.

We invite you to become a member of this select group. Annual membership dues are $1,000 for a couple or individual (who may bring a guest to any of the events if she/he chooses to do so). One hundred percent of your dues supports student scholarships, making it fully tax-deductible. Many talented up-and-coming artists and designers on campus today would not be able to pursue their dreams at the Kansas City Art Institute without scholarship assistance.

To join, visit to the donations page and scroll to the bottom. Select the "Warwick Society" option and follow the instructions. For more information, contact Nicole Ratliff at 816-802-3421 or nratliff@kcai.edu. The Warwick Society is for those who want to learn, share experiences, try new things and have fun.
