For over a decade, The Art Institute of Washington has welcomed students—those seeking degrees and those just taking a class or two—to its classrooms, located just across the street from the Rosslyn Metro station. Some of those classrooms smell positively delicious; the facility houses three teaching kitchens, a dining lab, and a student-run restaurant helping budding culinary experts develop their palates, knife-skills, and knack for making cauliflower appetizing. Other students master graphic and web design, fashion marketing, and photography, and interior design students get to illuminate things—literally—in the lighting lab.

Founder-director Isabel Benemelis grew up in Cuba, surrounded by the mambo tunes and Afro-Cuban rhythms that earned the country its reputation as a musical hot spot. At age 4 she took up the piano, and by 7 she found herself "mesmerized by the music of Beethoven, Chopin, and Bach" whenever it hit her ears. This immersion in multiple genres influenced Benemelis when she built her school from oboe reeds in 1995: faculty members specialize in classical music, but ably veer into jazz and Latin scores if students have an interest. During one-on-one, 30-minute lessons, they teach adults and children older than age 4 to play piano, guitar, saxophone, bongos, and a host of other instruments. In keeping with the school’s multidisciplinary roots, many instructors are also fluent in English and Spanish.
