Events
  • Artist Anna Craycroft, of the current exhibition Tuning the Room in Ben Maltz Gallery, in discussion with artist and curator Micah Silver.

  • Emily Thorpe's art work addresses the twisting formation of memory through spatial relations and moments of domesticity. She will be presenting a solo exhibition for her Graduate Thesis at The Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art & Design, on view February 20 to February 25, 2017. There will be a closing reception on Saturday, February 25, 6-9pm.

  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

  • "In publishers’ terms, Shock and Awe – a hefty, intellectual book about glam rock – is timely." - Jude Rogers, The Guardian

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.
