  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. 

    We're excited the film’s director Brian Knappenberger will be our special guest speaker for the Q & A moderated by Movies that Matter series producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin after the screening.

Young Artist Workshops


Young Artist Workshops

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.
 

In addition to Young Artist Workshops, Otis also offers Portfolio Development and College Preparation courses for high school students and a 4-week intensive college immersion program, Summer of Art for students 15 and older. During the summer, Otis Pre-College Programs also offers summer camps for students aged 5-15.
