Employment Opportunities

OCAC is a place to learn how to think, not what to think, how to craft art, not what art to craft. It's a place to develop a breadth of experience with different materials that is very rare in our age of specialization, yet extraordinarily useful in today's ever-changing art world. It's that rare place where everyone's views are valued, where careful and caring discussion and respect for difference are the guiding rules, not the exception. OCAC is an intentionally small, exceptionally student-centered art college gathering people from all over the country.

Mission Statement

Oregon College of Art and Craft is dedicated to Craft as the creative material practice at the core of art and design. OCAC's mentor-based learning community fosters self-reliant, entrepreneurial, critical and innovative makers.

OCAC is distinguished by the institutional philosophy of learning through making, the transferability of the creative process to other areas of endeavor, and the commitment to maintaining an intimately sized, mentor-driven learning environment that nurtures enhanced student growth through individualized attention.
