Connecting design thinking to design doing, Oregon College of Art and Craft and Pacific Northwest College of Art have collaborated to create a unique MFA Program grounded in hands-on making, entrepreneurial strategies, and social and environmental engagement.
Combining a mentor-based approach with an exceptional visiting artists program, students work one-on-one with nationally and internationally recognized designers, makers, and scholars in a self-directed curriculum that challenges them to bring to life the full strength of their ideas and skills.
MFA AC+D students have the opportunity to directly engage with prominent visiting artists, designers, and critics through the Program’s robust lecture series, typically complemented by studio visits, workshops and a post-lecture dinner in the studio.
MFA AC+D Studios – 421 NE 10th Ave. Portland, OR
