Alumni serve an important part of the ongoing OCAC community and wider body of local, national and internationally recognized artists. The OCAC Alumni Association organizes events that help foster a lasting connection with the campus: wine tastings, open studio tours, museum fieldtrips, portfolio days, alumni presentations, and the annual OCAC Holiday Sale.
OCAC also offers alumni opportunities to remain connected with the institution in a variety of ways:
- Alumni facilitate studio workshops in their area of specialization for their peers and potential student applicants.
- As successful professional working artists, alumni serve as inspiring role models for currently enrolled undergraduates.
- OCAC organizes regular exhibits to showcase alumni artwork, invites specific alumni to market their art in the College's Craft Gallery, and features alumni work at the annual Art on the Vine Auction fundraiser.
