  • High&Low Bureau is a curatorial duo composed of Yael Messer and Gilad Reich. They curate exhibitions, film programs, performative events and publications, while engaging with a plethora of disciplines, media and modes of artistic expression.Their curatorial practice is dedicated to the exploration of artistic strategies that reflect on, and suggest alternatives to, specific social-political conditions.

  • Los Angeles is a city often described as having no center. Its art community has turned that "disadvantage" into an advantage and given itself a license for adventure. Organizations, galleries, and artists find decentralization to be an exciting option and they establish their addresses in unexpected neighborhoods and zones in the city and even beyond, in other cities and states. What are the challenges and advantages of this programmatic and conceptual strategy? What are the risks, to organization and audience alike? Is this necessary, and if so, is it sustainable?

Young Artist Workshops


Young Artist Workshops


Fall Semester Begins September 6th (current offerings)

Courses for Young Artists Ages 5-17

Young Artists Workshops are designed to give children and teens an equal measure of traditional art skills and spontaneous creative experiences. Children’s courses introduce the elements and principles of art (line, tone, perspective, color, composition) while encouraging personal expression and exploration. Teen courses provide in-depth exploration of art materials and techniques, while further examining creative ideas through class discussions. The goal is to build self-confidence and have fun.

Courses take place at Otis College of Art and Design’s Elaine & Bram Goldsmith Campus, 9045 Lincoln Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90045 and the Otis Mid-Wilshire Studio, located at 6124 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90045.
 

The fall semester begins September 6th. For course descriptions and dates, faculty bios, and more information, check out the list of current offerings.
 

Open House is August 17th, 2014 1:00 – 3:00pm. Attend the Continuing Education and Pre-College Programs Open House to learn more about current courses and programs, as well as meet some of the faculty.
