What Do You Love About Creating?

We asked Otis College of Art and Design students what they love about creating. "I love art because it grants you the ability to create a world," said digital media major Luke Javellana. "You can help characters fall in love, you can help them conquer their fears, and you can help them grow. In that way, I think it's special because it resonates with people." Watch the full video to hear from more students on why they love to create. 

Support Independent Makers This Holiday Season

The holiday season can be full of sales and big store blow-outs, but the art of gift giving requires a little more thought. For the loved ones on your list consider gifts that are designed, handcrafted, illustrated, or curated by independent makers. We've put together a few recommendations from alumni-owned businesses that offer something for everyone, from luxurious yet playful kids clothing to sustainable furniture to the perfect planter for your office.
