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.

Midtown Studio - Teaching at LACMA

Fine arts students have a unique opportunity to take painting classes with unprecedented access to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s world-class painting collection.  The Otis Mid-Town Studio at 6124 Wilshire Blvd. is within walking distance to the museum, allowing students to use the collection as a primary resource in developing their work.  The proximity of the studio to LACMA—just one block west--allows faculty and students to visit the museum on a weekly basis, when it is closed to the public, and bring information back to the studio.
