Foundation

Finding Inspiration at the Museum

A group of Otis College assembled in the open courtyard of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on a sun-filled Tuesday morning. They were visiting the museum in what has become a cornerstone of the Foundation year at Otis College.

The Foundation program is part of the core curriculum and provides an opportunity for students to build a platform of skills, knowledge, and experience that supports them in the future, both educationally and professionally. It provides an experiential understanding of the rich relationships between all of the art and design disciplines.

Cathy Lightfoot's Sensation of Color

In 2013, Cathy Lightfoot, Adjunct Associate Professor, started an informal exploration of color relationships in her sketchbook. A painter, Lightfoot used the series of informal gouache exercises to explore color gradations, and color relationships that appear to generate light energy. The project grew into a focused and systematic investigation numbering over 120 gouache paintings that she intended to arrange in combinations for use when planning her larger paintings.

As a student, seeking respite from the relatively hidebound painting department, I often retreated to the sculpture studios. There, the critical gaze of teachers seemed less intense; sculpture students did as they pleased. Around that time about a decade ago, I took Beginning Sculpture from Krysten Cunningham, who fostered critical dialogue around fundamental techniques of welding and casting.
