Online Classes

The Kansas City Art Institute contracts with Ed2Go to bring you instructor-facilitated online courses that are informative, fun, convenient and highly interactive. Instructors are known for their ability to create warm and supportive communities of learners. It's no wonder that friendships have formed in our lively and intelligent discussion areas.

These classes are great for:

  • Updating your skills
  • Adding new skills
  • Freshening up your portfolio or resume

That’s where online learning comes in. Even if you’ve never taken an online class before and are slightly intimidated by the thought of it, you will find these courses to be high quality, easily accessible and very affordable. It's a good place to get your feet wet with online learning and discover for yourself why this learning method has become so popular. If you have taken online classes before, you will find our variety and numerous offerings an excellent choice for continuing your education at a time and place that’s most convenient for you.

All courses run for six weeks, with a two-week grace period at the end. Courses are project-oriented and include lessons, quizzes, hands-on assignments, discussion areas, supplementary links and more. You can complete any of these courses entirely from your home or office at any time of the day or night. Most classes are priced at $95. 

Please visit our Online Instruction Center for access to complete course descriptions, student evaluations, instructor biographies and other information.


For any ed2go course, you will need Internet access, a non-shared e-mail address, the Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox Web browser, and the latest Adobe Flash and PDF plug-ins. Visit and click Get Adobe Flash Player and Get Adobe Reader to download these free plug-ins.

Most of our courses are Macintosh compatible. If a course is not Macintosh compatible, this information will be stated on the course's Requirements tab when you view the course details.
