As a student in the Corcoran, you have the opportunity to use innovative spaces to create your art, both as a part of class and outside of it. From specialty studios, labs and spaces, you can explore and push the limits of your creativity.
All Corcoran open studio spaces will be closed during the following holidays:
Winter Break: Wednesday, Dec. 22, 2021 - Sunday, Jan. 9, 2022
Martin Luther King Day: Jan. 17, 2022
Shared Studios, not personal studios or lockers, must be cleaned out by 5pm on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2021.
Clear your materials out of flat files, racks, etc. in classrooms and maker spaces before you leave for the break.
All remaining items will be disposed of by studio staff to reset studios for the spring semester.
Students who need to make other arrangements for in-process works email [email protected] for instructions and approval.
All students must follow GW's Covid-19 safety protocols and be cleared to be granted access to the buildings. You must wear a mask the entire time you are in the studios and sign in is required.
Please note that using our spaces requires that you be a currently registered Corcoran student, training before use, and are contingent on class schedules. If you have any questions, contact [email protected] or check our techs' twitter for real time updates: @corcorantechs.
Please consult individual studio schedules to see availability.

At the Corcoran School, the Flagg Building is one of our homes on campus. The Beaux Arts building on 17th Street, three blocks from the original Renwick gallery, dates back to 1897. The first phase of renovations to the historic Flagg Building were completed in the spring of 2018. The main offices for the Corcoran School, the Interior Architecture, Design and Studio Arts degrees are located in the "Administrative Offices" to the left of the South Atrium.
Quick tip: Corcoran Hall (725 21st Street, NW) is not the Corcoran School's Flagg Building (500 17th Street, NW).
THEATRE & DANCE SPACES
Our Theatre and Dance classes take place in performance spaces where you can put what you learn directly into practice. Our administrative office is located in Building XX at 814 20th Street, NW (3rd Floor); XX is accessible any day with GWorld.
The Decorative Arts and Design History program is located in the Smithsonian S. Dillon Ripley Center on 1000 Jefferson Drive, SW, Suite 3077. Specialized seminars in the history of furniture, textiles, costume, glass, ceramics, silver and interiors are taught here.
The Ripley Center is closed to the public, but badged Decorative Arts and Design History students and professors may be permitted to enter, with appointments arranged in advance with Professor Erin Kuykendall. All students should carry their active Smithsonian ID badge and be prepared to complete the COVID-19 health screening. Students should pay attention to the expiration date printed on the badge.
