Leo F. Hobaica, Jr. began teaching in the Character Animation Program in 1996, with the administrative title of Assistant Director; in 2005, he was appointed Assistant Dean of the School of Film/Video, which is his present position. His teaching responsibilities within Character Animation include a primary focus in Color and Design I for first year students. Along with mentoring and independent studies with students across discipline lines, he also teaches Concept and Design in Animation (Color and Design II), Site Visit, and the annually alternating foreign travel classes, Art Appreciation: Paris, and Art Appreciation: Istanbul. He sits on the Academic Council as the elected Faculty Trustee to the Board of Trustees of the California Institute of the Arts, manages several CAP animation programs, and is an active member of the recently formed chapter of the AAUP at CalArts. External to CalArts, he is a board member of the alternative art's organization, NewTown/Pasadena.

His art practice includes the fabrication of sculptural objects, work in a mixed-media format, and temporary site-specific installations; he has completed several public art projects. Mr. Hobaica has collaborated with faculty from other departments at CalArts to produce interdisciplinary work, as well as projects with other international artists. His resume reflects a record of regional, national and international exhibitions; this record is mirrored in his teaching experience as well.

In 2005, he received a Fulbright Scholars’ Grant, and spent the Spring 2006 semester in Istanbul, Turkey, as a visiting professor at Istanbul Kultur University, and as a practicing artist. Other honors include: artist-in-residencies in France (2003, 1997), a public art commission for the city of Oakland, CA (1994-95), a Scaggs Foundation Grant (1987), and a California State Visiting Artists' Grant (1986).

He is a strong proponent of an international experience for as many CalArts' students as possible, and supports interdisciplinary collaborations on campus wherever he can.
