Small classes ensure personalized, in-depth learning. Rigorous course work includes hands-on studio classes and labs in your chosen Specialization Course (three days per week) and/or a Foundation Studio (two days per week). Courses meet 9:00am - 4:20pm, Monday through Friday. (Some outside work is required.) 2 units of college credit for Specialization courses and 1 unit of college credit for Foundation Studio Courses are awarded upon successful completion of the program.
Summer of Art courses are taught by award-winning instructors who are practicing professionals, many of whom teach in Otis' BFA and MFA programs. Contact with these instructors provides a glimpse into the working lives of professional artists and designers and introduces you to many career choices in art, design and related fields.
You and your instructors will select your best work for a final exhibition. The work is displayed throughout the campus, giving you the experience of being part of a gallery show with your peers, while sharing your artwork with family and friends.
Optional student housing is available for an additional fee for students between 15-18 years, who are enrolled in the full 5-day per week program. Students reside in the Playa del Oro Apartments, only two blocks from Otis. A trained Resident Assistant resides in each apartment unit providing supervision for the Summer of Art residents. All resident students participate in organized evening and weekend activities such as beach trips, variety shows, museum visits, and dances.
