The Studio program offers close collaboration with faculty in the midst of the vibrant Los Angeles art scene.

We offer a broad range of studio courses in painting, printmaking, sculpture, bookmaking, drawing, installation, photography, and interdisciplinary arts. Our students regularly exhibit their work in Oxy’s three galleries, and create site-specific installations on campus and in L.A. You’ll study painting and drawing in three light-filled lofts, printmakers enjoy access to valuable vintage lithography stones alongside digital printmaking technologies, and sculpture students extend their work from indoors to outdoors in the Hodgetts + Fung-designed Mullin Family Studio and Art Gallery, which has welding equipment and woodshops.

The widely exhibiting studio faculty regularly integrate L.A. museum and gallery offerings into the course curriculum. You can take an internship at the city’s premier contemporary art institutions, including MoCA, RedCat Gallery, Outpost for Contemporary Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Studying studio art in Oxy’s liberal art context makes you highly competitive for grants, undergraduate research opportunities, study abroad, and advanced graduate study at the nation’s top art and research institutions.
