OCAD University's students work in a broad spectrum of disciplines, ranging from drawing and painting, printmaking, photography, criticism and curatorial practice, integrated media and sculpture/installation in the Faculty of Art; to advertising, environmental, industrial and graphic design, illustration and material art and design (jewellery, fibre and ceramics) in the Faculty of Design. OCAD U's annual "GradEx" transforms the university’s main building and the acclaimed Sharp Centre for Design into one of Toronto's largest and most anticipated exhibitions of emerging talent.
OCA/OCAD/OCAD U alumni are invited to visit the Alumni Lounge on Saturday, May 3 between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Alumni can drop in and relax in the lounge, enjoy some complimentary food and drink, register for a tour of the Medal Winner’s Exhibit and meet some of our key affinity partners including the Alumni Association, Autoshare, the Artists’ Health Alliance, Manulife Financial and TD Insurance.
