Registration Available Now for Winter at El Camino College
Winter Term is January 5 through February 7, 2017

ECC honors student Chris Vazquez says that enrolling in the 2017 winter term is a great way to take care of a necessary class in a short period of time. The business major enrolled in ECC after graduating from Mira Costa High School in 2015 and is on track to transfer to a university next fall, where he will continue his studies as a business major.

Chris plans to take a psychology class and knows some friends who are taking general education classes during the winter term as well.

“For me personally, it worked out perfectly because I plan on transferring next year, so it reduced my class load for spring,” said Vazquez, who is a member of ECC’s Ambassadors and the Honors Transfer programs.

Registration for the winter term is now open. The schedule of classes, in both digital and searchable formats, is available on the web at http://www.elcamino.edu/admissions/schedule.asp.

The five-week winter term is scheduled for Jan. 5 to Feb. 7. Students may take courses to get ahead in their studies, repeat an essential course, and satisfy prerequisites during Winter 2017. A variety of both day and evening courses are available, from transferrable general education to basic skills courses. Distance education/online classes are also offered.

“Many of our students take courses during the winter term in order to maintain their pace to graduation or to meet program requirements in a timely manner,” said El Camino College President Dena P. Maloney. “I would encourage all to consider a Winter 2017 course – even lifelong learners – El Camino College offers a variety of classes to suit any type of student and interest.”

All students are encouraged to register early for the best class selection. Students may register online at www.elcamino.edu by clicking on MyECC. The college will be closed for winter break Dec. 23–Jan. 2, however, online registration is available at www.elcamino.edu 24 hours per day, even during the break.

Below is a statement I help to craft at this week's Community College League of California Conference. As one of the Board Members for the League that serves the most number of students in Higher-Education in the country, I really felt a statement in support of our students needed to be made in light of last week's election. My fellow members agreed.
Statement by the the California Community College Trustees (CCCT) and Chief Executive Officers of the California Community Colleges (CEOCCC) Boards The California Community College League of California Reaffirms Commitment to Educational Opportunity for All Post-Election

"California community colleges were founded with the goal of fostering excellence and guaranteeing educational access for all. Now one in every five community college students in the nation attends a California community college. Over 67 percent of California community college students are people of diverse ethnic backgrounds and roughly 53 percent are female. The vitality and stability of California will thrive in direct proportion to its ability to foster a productive sense of acceptance in this diverse, multicultural environment and the economic viability of the California community college system depends, in part, on the stability of our enrollment in this diverse environment.

The California Community College League of California is committed to ensuring educational opportunity and success for all students regardless of race, ethnicity, language, culture, national origin, socio- economic class, age, physical ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and religious beliefs, national status, or economic status. This commitment is manifested not only in federal law, but in California state laws and regulations promulgated by the Legislature and Board of Governors, which provide financial assistance and academic support to students with a demonstrated need for such assistance. California Community Colleges are committed to being and remaining a welcoming environment for all students, including undocumented students. The safety and wellbeing of all California community college students will continue to be a primary concern as we monitor national issues that impact our campuses including immigration, and increasing access to high quality educational opportunities.

The California Community Colleges take great pride in being the gateway to opportunity for Californians of all backgrounds, including traditionally underrepresented economic, social, and racial/ethnic subgroups. Our goals and objectives for student success are aimed at providing access to students from all demographic and socioeconomic subgroups. The Community College League of California remain steadfast in our commitment to these objectives. "

El Camino College Art Gallery to Present Faculty Show 2016

The annual faculty art exhibit returns to the El Camino College Art Gallery from Nov. 21 through Dec. 15, with a reception scheduled for 5-8 p.m. Dec. 1 and a gallery talk set for 1 p.m. Dec. 6.

“Faculty Show 2016: Works by ECC Art Department and Photography Department Faculty” includes a variety of works in a wide range of media. The exhibit provides a look at the aesthetic and educational philosophies advocated by the El Camino College Art and Photography departments and demonstrates an array of concepts and techniques currently characteristic of the art world.

The artwork represents multiple techniques within the areas of photography, painting, drawing, print making, sculpture, mixed media installation, graphic design, digital media, video, jewelry, and ceramics.

The painting area is represented richly by Randall Bloomberg, who exhibits a fanciful portrait of his daughter; luscious landscape by Joe Kabriel; revelatory imagery by Thom Kidd; a reflective underwater self-portrait by Binh Ngo; and strong abstract works on paper by Harrison Storms. Richard Ewing shows ink wash caricatures of three deceased U.S. presidents and Linda Busch exhibits still life and portraiture in watercolor.

Joyce Dallal displays a mixed media scroll that references her experience of multi-cultural heritage. The design originated in photographs she took while on a residency in Spain. In the drawing and print making areas, Joe Hardesty shows a contemplative graphite drawing and Katherine Sheehan shows layered printed and painted landscapes with birds.

From the 3-D area, Russell McMillin exhibits an encrusted ceramic torso, one of a series of female warrior works. Vince Palacios presents ceramic sculpture decorated with ceramic decals of alchemical and botanical images. Pam Huth exhibits a realistic fledgling dragon made of bones. Cheryl Dimson presents mixed media vessels with live plants and Susanna Meiers displays small, dreamlike tableaux in mixed media.

Irene Mori presents elegant jewelry in silver with embedded precious stones. Michael Lewis Miller presents a 19th century schoolmaster's desk with an array of constructed wands/teaching props. Additionally, Miller exhibits two other 19th century tables with added mixed media and text components. Gretchen Potts presents an interactive/relational aesthetics installation made of printed plastic and paper shapes. She invites the viewer to contribute text or images to this wall-mounted piece.

Photography is represented with black and white silver gelatin prints by Darilyn Rowan. Aaron Giesel presents a glorious monumental silver gelatin image. Michael Quinn shows a luminous pigmented print of a landscape in Nevada. Robert Dalton displays a range of photographic images that include both digital manipulation and unaltered pieces in both black and white and color. Art historian and artist Ali Ahmadpour presents “American Tile,” a politically motivated, audience participatory installation with a video component.

Each year the faculty members of these two departments are invited to exhibit artwork in a noncurated exhibit that seeks to showcase the creative aspect of El Camino College faculty. The work is wide-ranging and fascinating, demonstrating the breadth of talent within the Art and Photography departments.

The El Camino College Art Gallery is located on campus, 16007 Crenshaw Boulevard, Torrance and is open 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays and from 1 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays.

For more information, contact Director/Curator Susanna Meiers at 310-660-3010. Admission to the El Camino College Art Gallery and gallery events is free. On-campus parking is $3.
