Last updated on Sep 10, 2022

The OCLC has invited professors in all programs to design assignments that would focus students' research and making on the architecture, flora, and artistic legacies of CCA's historic Oakland campus.

Projects have been informed by archival research in the CCA Libraries and oral histories, and have ranged from making handmade papers from plant materials gathered in the gardens to printing textiles from botanical renderings drawn from source material on campus.

Students who are located primarily on both the Oakland and San Francisco campus have responded with enthusiasm and have produced stellar work.

Some of the projects that have emerged are from the following courses:

This video is an installation designed by Jasmine Sun in Graham Plumb's Immersive Experience Design class in the fall of 2021. The work, which exquisitely captures the history of the campus, was produced after extensive archival research and an interview of OCLC co-chair Deborah Valoma.

Dennis Leon and the Art of Instruction (curated by Christopher Johnson);

A Garden Campus: Part II (curated by Annemarie Harr);
