Young Artist Workshops & Summer Camps


Young Artist Workshops


Summer Semester Begins June 4th (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.


Summer Camps: During the summer, Otis Continuing Education and Pre-College Programs offers a full day of courses, five days a week, for children ages 5-12. If desired, children and teens can attend both a morning and afternoon session. A supervised lunch break is available, for a nominal $50 fee for those students who attend a full day (meals not included). This fee is paid upon check-in on the first day of each 2-week session. Weekend courses are also available throughout the summer. Please call (310) 665-6850 for further information.

Due to space limitations during the College’s Campus Improvement Project, Young Artist Workshop programs for ages 13-15 will only be offered as 8 week sessions on weekends this summer.

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 unless otherwise noted.


Courses run for 8 sessions unless otherwise specified.
For course descriptions and dates, faculty bios, and more information, check out the list of current offerings.


Open House is Saturday, May 14th, 2016 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 Preparation courses for high school students and a 4-week intensive college immersion program, Summer of Art for students 15 and older.
