Oregon College of Art and Craft’s 109 year tradition has centered on the study of Art through Craft as hand and mind united - in concert – as the single most important component of both art and design. At OCAC we know that craft combined with content is essential to every successful artist and designer; just look at our alumni who thrive in their abilities and knowledge to execute their ideas. Our students study with faculty in a mentor-based environment surrounded by the supportive ethos of Portland that values the hand-made, locally sourced, and ethically entrepreneurial. They use techniques that best serve their work, from hand tools that are centuries old to the digital technology of the twenty-first century and go on to be illustrious alumni.
