High School

High school classes are offered year-round at the Kansas City Art Institute. All classes give fine art instruction while working with any skill level. Classes align with the KCAI Foundation Year and are designed to give a preview of what art school life is like. Studio classes in ceramics, fiber, sculpture and woodworking take place in the collegiate studio space. Please call the high school programmer at 816-802-3489 if you have questions about the class schedule.

Each semester, select courses are offered for one hour of college credit with an additional fee. Students are encouraged to take credit classes in sets of three; three hours of college credit are typically equivalent to one college class.

This summer, studio classes are offered in sculptural welding and ceramics. Portfolio Preparation and ARTquation are instructed by Kansas City Art Institute Admission staff. Enroll early in these classes to reserve your seat. Questions about summer art intensives? Contact Sonja Garrett at sgarrett@kcai.edu or 816-802-3489.
