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.
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.
