  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

Student Voice Association (SVA) formerly known as Student Government Association is an informalized structure that reflects student needs, concerns and issues. All enrolled students are welcomed and encouraged to contact the Student Voice Representaive on campus to dicuss any and all concerns as related to campus and academic life.

Beginning in the Fall of 2016, the dedicated SVA representative will have designated hours in the Office of Student Activities, located in the New Academic Building room 150E. The representative will be available for walk-in appointments, and will also spend time reaching out to the Otis student body about past and present matters of concern that the college had addressed attention to.

Any Otis student who is passionate about helping other students on campus or wishes to be a part of a team that will help to resolve concerns on campus should contact the Office of Student Activities at 310-846-2595.
