History/Mission

Otis Students - Mount Baldy Trip

Circa 1920's, Otis students gather for a photo opportunity on the steps in the front of the campus before a trip to Mount Baldy.


Otis prepares diverse students of art and design to enrich our world through their creativity, their skill, and their vision.

Otis is L.A.’s first independent professional school of art and design. Since 1918, Otis has trained artists and designers who are in the vanguard of Southern California’s cultural and entrepreneurial life. From Mattel to Pixar to the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Otis graduates have made an individual, positive, and lasting mark on the world. Otis was founded in 1918 by General Harrison Gray Otis, the founder and publisher of the Los Angeles Times, who bequeathed his L.A. home to the city for "the advancement of the arts." The five-acre main campus is located on L.A.’s Westside near the beach. Fashion Design is downtown, in the heart of the fashion district. The graduate studios are on the creative corridor in nearby Culver City and in the 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica.
