Cornish College of the Arts
1000 Lenora St,
Seattle, WA 98121
Art is a social experience at Cornish. You’ll join a cohort of about a dozen peers. Together, you’ll participate in modules that address contemporary issues and ideas using a variety of visual mediums—painting, drawing, sculpture, photography,
digital media and more. Each module is taught by a faculty team assembled to bring expertise, context, and perspective to a particular subject.
From your first year, your study takes place in resident studios. Each cohort receives its own space, open morning till night, and together, you figure out how to make the best use of it. Rather than students moving in and out of different classrooms throughout the day, faculty teams will often come to you and your cohort. By your third year, the faculty will be your mentors, facilitating your interests, helping you identify your path, and supporting you in your growth.
Meanwhile, being in Seattle means you’ll have access to an array of Cornish partners, from arts institutions like the Frye Art Museum and the Henry Art Gallery to unconventional collaborators like the Institute for Systems Biology or Microsoft.
You'll be in good company. Alums like Heather Hart, Sarah Bergmann, SuttonBerresCuller, Aleah Chapin, and scores of others are producing award-winning, groundbreaking work that sparks important questions about our communities and ourselves.
At Cornish, we know you’re an artist. We’re eager to help you become yourself.
