Art History

Nataña Aldana is a first year MA student from Altadena, California. After receiving her BFA from Otis College of Art + Design in Los Angeles, she built a career on branding and communication design in Northern and Southern California. After attending UC Davis for Art History and consulting with faculty mentors, a refined focus emerged which examined the external influences on colonial Latin American art, through Spanish transoceanic trade. Her language studies in Spanish and Japanese, and time teaching art at the Craft Center at UC Davis, has provided valuable experience to further her goal of becoming a college educator in the US or abroad.
