Founded in 1914, Cornish College of the Arts offers Bachelor degrees in the performing and visual arts.
The College’s founder Nellie Cornish, and the many teaching artists who have followed her, believed in education through exposure to all of the arts. This approach continues to inform the College’s curricula and community involvement today. Our holistic approach to education promotes experimentation, discovery, and innovation, giving artists the creative intelligence they need to thrive in their disciplines and beyond. We have been inspiring artistic and academic excellence for more than 100 years.
The mission of Cornish College of the Arts is to provide students aspiring to become practicing artists with an educational program of the highest possible quality, in an environment that nurtures creativity and intellectual curiosity, while preparing them to contribute to society as artists, citizens, and innovators.

Cornish College of the Arts Reviews
I would prefer better chefs in the cafeteria though since the food isn’t anything special. I would also like to see more publicity involving Cornish culture rather than this one isolated block in Seattle Center. It’s as divided as a Chinatown, needs more promo!
