Artists engage the world through conventional and unconventional means, to document the news of the day, to convey the emotion of another human being, to access unknown worlds and new adventures and even to alter our viewpoint, our space. At the Corcoran College of Art + Design, you will have the opportunity to study those who have challenged complacency with their own work and the ability to create your own path of self-expression and exploration.
Grounded in a long tradition of excellence in education, the Corcoran provides an intimate learning experience that balances the rigors of academic studies with opportunities for independent study. At the heart of your Corcoran experience is our renowned faculty, including some of the most active, cutting-edge artists, designers and photographers in the country.
