What we do, what we know and what we make shapes our identity as artist and art community. We learn by doing. We learn by making. Craft is the medium through which artists communicate with peers and the world. As artists, we must develop a basic visual vocabulary before we can create.

In Foundations, the first year of studies, students learn the language of art and craft, which is the groundwork for all artistic endeavors. “Image: Perception and Context” introduces two-dimensional design/drawing and “Object: Form and Materials” explores three-dimensional design. Students are taught to dissect the underlying structure and to construct, rearrange and assess elements at will. Experimentation is celebrated as we converse visually with the use of “Images” and “Objects”.

This annual Foundation exhibition celebrates work made in the fall semester by OCAC students in the Bachelor of Fine Arts Program. What we do, what we know and what we make shapes our identity as artist and art community. We learn by doing. We learn by making. Craft is the medium through which artists communicate with peers and the world. As artists, we must develop a basic visual vocabulary before we can create.
