How To Apply To The Kc Art Institute


The KC Art Institute is located in Kansas City, Missouri. The Institute began in 1885 and many aspiring artists in that year formed a club called "Sketch Club". The Sketch Club was made with the sole purpose to talk about art and to judge each others pictures. The artists met in private homes and then the students moved the meetings to a building called Deardorf Building. Deardorf Building is located in download town Kansas City on 11th and Main. The Sketch Club had their first art exhibition 2 years later in 1887. Twelve artists formed the "Kansas City Art Association & School of Design". Howard Vanderslice bought the August R. Meyer building in 1927 and the accompanying estate next to the Nelson Atkins Museum on 44th and Warwick. Currently, many aspiring artists and painters still apply to KC Art Institute to learn.
