    Artsy best decribes Alex Olson’s works as "abstract, but that’s not how she would choose to refer to them: “In fact, the way I approach painting is almost the opposite in that nothing is an abstraction of something else,” she says. “It literally is what it is.” Olson’s paintings aim to be exact records of how they were made, self-evident in their construction.

  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

Young Artist Workshops & Summer Camps


Young Artist Workshops


Spring Semester Begins February 4th. 
See our Current Offerings here!


Courses for Young Artists Ages 5-18
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.

For course descriptions and dates, faculty bios, and more information, check out the list of current offerings. All courses run for 8 sessions and take place at Otis College of Art and Design’s Elaine & Bram Goldsmith Campus, 9045 Lincoln Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90045, unless otherwise noted.

Open House is Sunday, January 8, 2017 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.

IMPORTANT:
• On the first day of classes ALL students attending courses on the Goldsmith Campus must check in with Continuing Education staff in the lobby of the Ahmanson Building before attending class.
• All Young Artist Workshop students are required to submit a completed Pre-College Programs Emergency Contact Information Form, Policies and Procedures Acknowledgement of Receipt, and Photo/Video Release Form prior to admittance into the classroom. Students will not be permitted to attend without this.

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 5-15. 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. 

Other Courses:
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.
