About Otis College
Otis College prepares diverse students of art and design to enrich our world through their creativity, their skill, and their vision.
At Otis College we promote excellence and innovation within a rigorous yet caring and collaborative environment. Students are encouraged to be individualistic and passionate in their approach to art and design.
As Los Angeles’ first independent professional school of art and design, Otis College is located on the west side of Los Angeles in the heart of Southern California’s creative community. The nearby coastal communities of Venice, Marina del Rey, and Santa Monica are home to many of Los Angeles’ most important art and design studios, as well as headquarters for many leading film, digital imaging, video game, and toy companies.
