About KCYA

 Transforming How Students See the World

For more than five decades, Kansas City Young Audiences has had the opportunity to do something extraordinary-help students on their amazing journey of discovery.  We do that by:

  • Harnessing the power of the arts in learning
  • Offering the broadest variety of arts education programs in the area
  • Backing our methods up with an unrivaled history of success with students and educators

Serving more than 5 million in its history, KCYA is the largest provider of arts programs in the Kansas City area and one of the largest members of the national Young Audiences Arts for Learning network.

Get Smart with the Arts

Get Smart with the Arts is a video project that features Kansas City Young Audiences students demonstrating the value of arts education programs.  

These charming videos were developed by the teaching artists and students in conjunction with Kansas City Public Television (KCPT).
