  • 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.

Continuing Education Course



iPads in the Classroom: A Creative Visual Arts Tool


This one-day workshop introduces teachers to the creative potential of the iPad for both instructors and students. Create digital works of art by downloading and operating free to low-cost user-friendly art applications (apps) that provide access to virtual art materials including digital crayons, markers, and paint. Explore the basics -- opening a new file, using the various drawing/painting tools, saving, accessing, and emailing artwork files; and more complex operations -- working with layers, expanded color pallets, multiple brushes featuring opacity and size controls, image transformation options, and text inclusion. Covers step-by-step instruction in utilizing the iPAd as a tool for tutorial creation, project documentation, and visual presentation. Ideal for classroom teachers who wish to engage students creatively, introduce basic art techniques, and incorporate student artwork into classroom projects.
