Lead Faculty:

Mati Sanchez, Department Chair


There are many genres within the area of Performing Arts and here at Oxnard College and we have instructional departments in Dance, Music, and Fine Arts.

PremiereOne of Oxnard College's oldest and most loved groups is the OC Ballet Folklorico Mestizo which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2011. (Mati Sanchez, Advisor). The group gave the first two performances in the College's Performing Arts Center and are the Center's artists in residence.

There is also a Theatre Club whose advisor is Amy Edwards AEdwards@vcccd.edu and collaborate with the Community Theatre Group Teatro de las Americas who have cast many Oxnard College students in their performances.

Their next production will feature Miguel Heredia's play based on the life of Agustin Lara and you can download either the English or Spanish version of the poster of the event for further information.

Another focus for our department is the McNish Art Gallery which features Oxnard College student's artwork in a series of six shows offered in the Fall and Spring Semesters.
