Otis College of Art and Design

Otis is the only West Coast college of art and design that offers a full Foundation Year curriculum. The program is also unique in its approach to preparing students for the competitive, fast-paced 21st century while continuing to honor time-tested fundamentals. Throughout Foundation, students learn aesthetic fundamentals, sharpen their visual acuity, develop their cultural and information literacy, begin a connection with the larger community as emerging artists and designers, and hone the essential “thinking and making” skills required for creative professionals who will enjoy career success. The faculty—all of whom are working artists and designers—serve as role models. Talented, passionate, and thoughtful professionals, they are accessible to students both inside and outside the classroom.
