Foundation

Finding Inspiration at the Museum

A group of Otis College assembled in the open courtyard of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on a sun-filled Tuesday morning. They were visiting the museum in what has become a cornerstone of the Foundation year at Otis College.

The Foundation program is part of the core curriculum and provides an opportunity for students to build a platform of skills, knowledge, and experience that supports them in the future, both educationally and professionally. It provides an experiential understanding of the rich relationships between all of the art and design disciplines.

The project grew into a focused and systematic investigation numbering over 120 gouache paintings that she intended to arrange in combinations for use when planning her larger paintings.
