For Oxy Students

COMMUNITY STUDIO @ Oxy Arts - Collaborate 

The Oxy Arts Collaborate Workshop brings together a teaching artist, Oxy students, and youth from Highland Park in creative collaboration. During the first six weeks of the semester, Oxy students learn core arts education and public engagement pedagogy. In the following 6 weeks, Oxy students collaboratively lead an after school art workshop for local middle school youth, culminating in a final public presentation.

Course enrollment occurs in late fall and spring for the subsequent semester. 

The Oxy Arts Collaborate program is made possible by the generous support of the Kathryn Caine Wanlass Charitable Foundation.


Launching in Spring 2021, Oxy Arts will be offering free after-school art classes on-site at local Highland Park LAUSD elementary schools. Occidental students will have the opportunity to lead after school art classes through this program and apply for internships with local art partners. Completion of the 2-unit Collaborate course is required to participate in this program. 

The Oxy Arts COMMUNITY STUDIO program is made possible by the generous support Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
