|Do Something Creative at KCAI
The national stationery chain Paper Source has a great tagline: “Do something creative every day.” If you live in Kansas City, that’s an easy rule to follow. With the highest percentage of artists per capita of any city in the US, inspiration is as easy as walking down the street.
And if you’ve always wanted to develop your inner artist, it’s not too late. In fact, the Kansas City Art Institute offers community courses in drawing, painting, photography and more. Continuing Ed classes are already starting at the KCAI Northland Campus, here in the Briarcliff community. If you’re ready to do something creative, now’s the time to enroll.
Fall courses for adults (18+) are offered at various levels–for those who have never touched a brush or a camera, all the way up to proficient artists who want to sharpen their skills. Classes available at the Northland campus include drawing, fiber arts, foundations, graphic design, mixed media, painting, photography and printmaking. To see what’s available, go online and view their course catalog.
A professional development series called Unbottling Creativity is also available for business groups. “Companies aren’t creative. People are creative,” the course description reads. The seminar seeks to unleash the creative potential within your professional team. For more information, see KCAI’s continuing education website.
Of course, there’s also the KCAI main location in Midtown, if you see something you like there–including a fun Art History program at the Nelson-Atkins Museum entitled, “Here’s Looking at Art.”
Classes are filling up now, so check out the course listings today. And get ready to do something creative!
