• Welcome to the Oxnard College Art blog!

    Oxnard College is located in a quaint, agricultural beach town, tucked away between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. The raw talent of our yet-to-be discovered student artists contributes to a great program. This blog gives you a chance to discover artwork, exhibits and projects involving Oxnard College art students, alumni and art faculty. It also features exhibitions that take place at Oxnard College's McNish Art Gallery, the goings on of Project ONS (a series of experimental shows lead by O.C. alumni), and STEAM collaborations between Science and Art at Oxnard College.

    Oxnard College is located at 4000 South Rose Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93033, U.S.A. For more information email cmorla@vcccd.edu.
