    Artsy best decribes Alex Olson’s works as "abstract, but that’s not how she would choose to refer to them: “In fact, the way I approach painting is almost the opposite in that nothing is an abstraction of something else,” she says. “It literally is what it is.” Olson’s paintings aim to be exact records of how they were made, self-evident in their construction.

  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

Perspective Drawing


Developed during the Renaissance, perspective was as innovative then as the Internet is today. Perspective enabled artists to create the illusion of depth, volume, and three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional picture plane. Interior design is concerned with the creation of living, working, and hospitality environments. The spaces themselves, as well as their contents, needs to be rendered both two and three-dimensionally. This is accomplished through using grids, floor plans, and one-point and two-point perspective drawings. Floor plans help to illustrate a design concept. One-point and two-point perspective grids help bring the designer’s vision into reality. In this hands-on course, students gather reference photos of furniture, accessories, and plants to fill their rooms, and render them in felt-tip markers. Students work in class every session – bring supplies to all class meetings.
