  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

Continuing Education Course



Fundamentals of 2-Dimensional Design


This foundation level course provides a thorough introduction to design for the beginner through the application and understanding of 2-dimensional elements and principles. Course offers preparation for beginners and professionals in several design areas. Weekly achromatic (non-color) projects deal with fundamentals of line, space, directional movement, balance, value, texture, pattern, perspective and monochromes. Confidence in hand skills is developed and a final project in the student's area of interest is required. Students gain exposure to a range of current and historical design forms. Class includes studio time, slide lectures, and critique.

Prerequisite: None (may be taken concurrently with XGRD1101 Color Theory & Design).
