    Artsy best decribes Alex Olson’s works as "abstract, but that’s not how she would choose to refer to them: “In fact, the way I approach painting is almost the opposite in that nothing is an abstraction of something else,” she says. “It literally is what it is.” Olson’s paintings aim to be exact records of how they were made, self-evident in their construction.

  • 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



Logos, Symbols & Letterforms (blended course)


This professionally oriented course focuses on what might be considered the essence of visual communications -- the symbol. Through weekly slide lectures and assignments, students explore a wide variety of considerations involved in developing effective iconography, from reductive corporate logos to more complex logotypes. This course covers such areas as elements of a successful logo, design stationery systems, selecting identity colors, and creating customized letterforms and fonts for logotype or title use. Students can produce their assignments using their own computer or by traditional methods discussed in class. This course is presented in a ten-week blended format including two face-to-face meetings, week 6 and week 10, and eight online meetings. All face-to-face class meetings are held at Otis College. The course’s online modules can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection.

Material will be uploaded on Sunday evenings 11:59pm (beginning 2/5/17). Login information will be emailed following student's registration. Enrollment deadline: Monday, 2/6.
