Time and time again, our Eagles come out on top. So, it's no surprise when they place in international competitions.
Even so, we're impressed every time.
Most recently, our Art & Design students participated in Creative Quarterly, an international art and design competition attracting entries from prestigious schools around the world. Competing against artists from schools like Queens College and Savannah College of Art & Design, our Eagles presented art that blew the judges away.
Mark Dickison took home 1st place in Advertising, sharing the award with Yujie Huang of the Savannah College of Art & Design. His piece creatively advertises a Toy & Action Figure museum, depicting a child meeting their superhero.
Several other Eagles were awarded for their impeccable design talent. Chandler Jones (Fine Arts), Caleb Andresen (Graphic Design) and Grace Green (Illustration) all earned runner-up in their respective categories.
OC's award-winning Art & Design program is made up of experienced faculty and brilliant students. With large studio spaces, computer labs and a beautiful art gallery, our program provides you with the space you need to thrive. Not only does an art degree allow you to create and follow your passions—art graduates have a wide range of career opportunities! On top of being encouraged to enter competitions that challenge your skills, you'll begin networking as a student, ready to enter your career confidently. In the mean time, you'll create great art that melts hearts and changes lives.
Congratulations to Mark, Chandler, Caleb and Grace! We're proud that you call OC home and represent us so well.
