• 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.

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.
