Kansas city art institute


Founded in 1885 in Kansas City, Missouri, it is a four-year accredited college of art and design. Its origins date back to the local Sketch Club, whose meetings were held in private homes and at the Deardorf Building at 11th & Main in downtown Kansas City. In 1922, the school moved to 44th and Warwick Boulevard, on eight acres of land adjacent to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. In 1935, Thomas Hart Benton, having been at the Art Students League in New York City, joined the KCAI faculty, which gave the school a prestige boost. Distinguished students include John Steuart Curry, Ernest Lawson, Dan Christensen, James Boren, John Falter, and Paul Jenkins Sources: Wikipedia, "Kansas City Art Institute"; AskART biographies
