About Us

We are the originals,
adventurers, and creators.

The mission of Otis College of Art and Design is to educate a diverse community of students to become highly skilled, well-informed, and responsible professionals—empowering them to shape the world.

At Otis College, we don't sit by and watch. We look at the world and look again. We get inspiration from everywhere. We need to make—and try everything. We work hard and work is our play. We experiment, we fail, and we grow. We use all the tools.

The city is our soul—Los Angeles—where dreams meet discipline. We don't just welcome, support, and include. Diversity defines us.
