    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.

LeP Process

Learning e-Portfolio Process

Learning ePortfolio Process

COLLECT

Creation of Learning ePortfolios occurs during the Orientation/Registration process in July and August.

Students use the Learning ePortfolio to collect artifacts as evidence of their learning throughout their time at Otis. These artifacts encompass:

  • Lived Experiences: which include work, life, activities, co-curriculars, lectures and/or gallery visits
  • Process: this is research, drafts and/or sketches
  • Learning: for example reading, writing, designing and/or collaborating.

 

SELECT

Students select artifacts for the Learning ePortfolio from the various assignments given in their courses. In certain circumstances, specific direction is given by instructors. The material selected for the Learning ePortfolio should best represent the student's work in a course and fulfill the learning outcomes as stated in the syllabus.

Students should consult the instructor with concerns or questions regarding what to upload on the Learning ePortfolio.

 

Reflect

Reflection is the most critical aspect of the Learning ePortfolio. Students reflect on the artifacts (assignments) archived on the Learning ePortfolio. Instructors will provide direction in class.

Students are better able to determine their own growth and learning when they take a moment to pause and think about what they have learned in a given course. Consequently, students stand better prepared to apply that knoweldge in future Otis courses as well as in their studio practice.
