The mission of Kansas City Art Institute is to be a leader in the visual arts and design education by preparing gifted students for lifelong creativity through intensive interaction with preeminent faculty and facilities, and by stimulating active public awareness, support, and participation in the visual arts and design.
I love the atmosphere and student body. Though this obviously doesn't apply to every member of the student body, most people I've encountered on campus have been generally open and friendly. The campus is a bit small but active and is in a prime location that gives students the chance to interact with the surrounding city.Read More
Most of my time at KCAI was really awful. The dorms are a terrible place to live, and they take their own sweet time fixing things that need fixing. There was a throbbing noise all of my second semester that kept everyone awake at night and nothing was done about it for the longest time. The food is terrible and many days I would just eat cereal for every meal because the options are just that bad. We would often walk down to QT to get food. My only enjoyment came from the few friends I made, which had nothing to do with the school itself. You need a car to get basically anywhere and overall, my experience was just not something I'd wish upon anyone.Read More
Great enviornment. Everyone is super nice and they work their hardest to make it feel like home. The staff is very friendly and hardworking. I love the campus and the location, within walking distance of the plaza shopping district and right between the kemper and nelson atkins museum.Read More
