  • 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



Integrated Learning through Visual Art


Fuel creativity, ignite minds, and provide inspiration. Empower your students to think critically and creatively through interdisciplinary hands-on art projects that explore personal symbolism, context, and students’ own perceptions of contemporary culture. Workshop explores multiple entry points for students with different learning styles, students with English as a second language, and students with learning disabilities. Activities provide options for investigating and interpreting art at a deeper level, sparking a creative response. Discover ways to integrate the arts with core curriculum, while incorporating multiple approaches such as writing and art making. The day begins with a tour of El Segundo Museum of Art’s exhibition of the art of Michael Sistig. Sistig’s paintings and sculpture feature concepts of intuition and “memory as a process,” focusing on individual and community identity, symbolism, personal environments, and memories. Engage in rich discussions through inquiry based learning used by many museums and arts organizations nationally, designed to increase students' critical thinking, language and literacy skills. Course covers themes and questions regarding contemporary art; provides ways to enrich student learning; and builds student’s self-confidence, motivation, and self-discipline.
