Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles Rep Visit 2/12

2/12 WED. A-day Portfolio Review during lunch in UA7 & Presentation during 3rd.

Marie Claire Macadar, Admissions Counselor at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles will provide a presentation DURING 3A IN UA7 about factors to consider when choosing a college, that touch on Otis specifics as well as some portfolio development tips. The presentation is about 30 minutes long, possibly 40 minutes if allowing time for Q&A.

(PORTFOLIO REVIEW DURING LUNCH IN UA7) Additionally,  students who are starting to pull their portfolios together, I’d be very happy to do some portfolio reviews with students, as a way of giving them fresh feedback and a sense of how to strengthen their portfolios for their applications.

You can see a list of our undergraduate majors here: http://www.otis.edu/majors. That can give you a sense of which classes/students would be interested in our various programs; Fine Arts is just the beginning!

Anti-Littering Campaign!

We hope you will participate in an Anti-Littering campaign to bring attention and awareness that each of us is responsible to actively keep our campus and community clean by cleaning up after ourselves, picking up trash when we see it and recycling whenever possible.

Check out some of our students’ creations for this campaign! To see more work visit the gallery here

Your Visual Arts Teachers hard at work!

Department meetings aren’t so bad when it includes art appreciating (and buying) in Laguna Beach. Working lunch included BIG plans for VAQUERO VISUAL ARTS day!

ArtWALK Field Trip success!

So much fun and ART and exploration! Art students had their eyes wide OPEN checking out downtown LA and the many sights/sites. The itinerary included: Cathedral of Our Lady Of Angels (Neo-Gothic!), unfortunately arrived too late to view the interior, then a walk to check out a bronze replica of the George Washington marble statue in Grand Central Park, next we snuck into the Metro Station for a look at mosaics based on Faith Ringgold paintings, and then onto the Disney Concert Hall to be WOWed by Frank Gehry’s deconstructivist architecture, and then the highlight visit to the Broad Contemporary museum (*mostly thanks to IHS art/photo/APAH/yearbook alum Chelsea Trinh*) where students got to view art LIVE by Shirin Neshat, Kara Walker, El Anatsui, Basqiuat, Kusama, Warhol, Lichtenstein and many more!

Our curious, and well-mannered mob then walked to Angel’s Flight funicular that took us to the Grand Central Market for an overwhelming variety of food options. Unfortunately, we ran out of time for our peek into the Bradbury Building, but were able to complete an almost-sprint through the Central Library to check out the exquisite rotunda and fabulous murals. We concluded by running (fast walking) a block or two (or 3) to find our bus patiently waiting to take us safely home to Irvine High. Absolute fantastic day only slightly marred by slow walkers 😉 More pics to come…

IHS Visual Arts Fundraiser

Please consider supporting Irvine High Visual Arts Teachers and the Art Club support Art education and art-making efforts via the Peace Corps in a Zulu village in South Africa. We realize there is so much need out there in the world—yet we would be grateful if you would consider supporting one of our courageous, and big-hearted former students Lexi Delahaut (IHS Class of 2010) in her teaching efforts/service in the Peace Corps currently at the Nansindlela Combined School in South Africa.
