Used to be Corcoran School of Art when I went there, a 4-year bachelor's degree and certificate offering school, teaching fine arts, photography, and graphics. A definite party school, even though a very small school, where students smoke pot on the fire escape, use hallucinogens, and drink Natty Bo. A lot of the teachers are ex-hippie types, but they are actually very good artists, and you can get a great education if you are motivated to do so. Now has expanded to offer Master's degrees and programs in various arts areas not mentioned previously. Located in Northwest DC near the White House (considered the best, safest quadrant of DC).
I was constantly high when I went to classes at the Corcoran College of Art and Design, but my teachers and classes were so good, I actually became a good artist.
