  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Sophomore Studio Electives

Students may select 2 units in the fall semester and 2 units in the spring semester.

 

Students may select from a wide range of studio elective courses listed below:

 

 

Advertising Workshop

ADVT 240    2 credits

Practicum I/II

Practicum is one of the core learning structures in the communication arts curriculum. One-on-one critiques with faculty and guests, lectures, demos, and workshops are all components of each section required of all students, sophomore to senior. Sections are divided by year.

 

Typography I/II

This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of typography and the study of letterforms. Problems of increasing complexity reference historical and contemporary typographical developments as the student explores the theoretical and applied use of type as visual form and visible language, from the letterpress to the computer screen. Students address and recognize type families, grid construction, hierarchies, and organizations based on visual, syntactical, and semantic explorations.

Drawing + Painting I/II

Students are introduced to the variety of materials and methods of drawing and painting, from traditional to conceptual visual thinking. Students learn that all visual communicators use drawing as a means of ideation or decision making. To develop the necessary skills, special emphasis is given to drawing as a fundamental means for thinking, looking, and making decisions, and as training in thinking through intense drawing exercises in thumbnails, sketching, roughs, and storyboards.
