What you learn will serve you for a lifetime
During your first year at Otis, known as Foundation Year, you will experience an immersive program that promotes your success in college.
Through inspiring studio and Liberal Arts and Sciences courses, you will acquire skills that are fundamental to all visual arts and the construction of meaning.
Adept, well-informed makers
You will examine new ideas, learn new ways of thinking, and ask new questions that will enhance your creativity, expression, and innovation. Visual and idea-oriented research will support your pictorial and 3-D compositions. Collaborative experiences in a learning community will ignite a spirit of investigation that will propel your education and practice.
Frequent workshop demonstrations will help you to realize ideas you never knew you had. Close dialogue with faculty members will allow you to visually resolve your work and discover working methods that will carry you into a major, serve you through college, and last a lifetime.
The spring Foundation Forward event helps you select a program of study. You may elect to pursue a Minor by entering one program of study and taking a number of elective courses outside that program.
Each spring break, a group of Foundation students travel to Paris for ten days to view art and design in an extraordinary urban environment.
By the end of the Foundation Year, students will have acquired these skills and concepts:
Fundamental Skills Mindful making and improving of work by manipulation of art and design media. Thinking Skills The ability to distinguish between and use rational, intuitive, and critical thinking processes, and to construct meaning using visual information. Visual Quality The ability to identify visual strengths and weaknesses to promote aesthetic resolution and clarity of intention. Professionalism Strategies for success such as attentiveness, time-management skills, and the ability to commit to a personal vision in the endeavor of art making. Inventiveness Using problem-defining processes to complement problem-solving skills. Spirit of Investigation Visual and idea-oriented research, the spirit of play, and delay of closure. Community as Resource Accessing the larger metropolitan community as a creative and learning resource. Preparation Identifying technical and conceptual needs of the art and design majors, and integrating them into the curriculum.
