  • Clay, Body is a solo exhibition from artist Sydney Aubert: Unapologetically fat, crass, and sexual, a ceramics artist who also works in video, and whatever other materials arouse her in the moment. Exhibition will be on view from Monday, April 24 - Friday, April 28 at the Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art and Design. On view by appointment only, please contact the artist at sydney.aubert@gmail.com Reception: Thursday, April 27 | 6pm-9pm Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art and Design

  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

See Current Offerings Here!

Courses for Young Artists Ages 5-18
Young Artists Workshops are designed to give children and teens an equal measure of traditional art skills and spontaneous creative experiences. Children’s courses introduce the elements and principles of art (line, tone, perspective, color, composition) while encouraging personal expression and exploration. Teen courses provide in-depth exploration of art materials and techniques, while further examining creative ideas through class discussions. The goal is to build self-confidence and have fun. Courses typically meet on Wednesdays, Satudays or Sundays, unless otherwise noted.

Summer Camps: During the summer, in addition to our weekend courses, Pre-College Programs offers Summer Camps from Monday-Friday, for children ages 5-15.  Summer Camps are offered in 2-week sessions. Courses are either 9:00am-12:00pm or 1:15pm-4:15pm. If desired, children and teens can attend both morning and afternoon sessions.

Session 1 6/12/17 - 6/23/17
Session 2 6/26/17 - 7/7/17 (no class 7/4)
Session 3 7/10/17 - 7/21/17
Session 4 7/24/17 - 8/4/17


For students attending the full day, a supervised lunch break is available for a nominal $50 fee (meals not included). This fee is paid at check-in on the first day of each 2-week session.
