Oregon College of Art & Craft vs. American Jeweler's Institute


#1

As an amateur silversmith with a long-term goal of becoming
professional, I’m happy to finally have the opportunity to go back to
school to learn the art full-time. Being unable to leave Portland,
Oregon, I can either attend Oregon College of Art & Craft or American
Jeweler’s Institute.

I’m eager to correspond with anyone who’s had experience with either
school, as I’m still debating which to attend, as well as any
jewelers in the area who might be willing to take on an apprentice.

Regards,
Amy J.

Dear Amy. I am not familiar with American Jeweler’s Institute, but
have taken classes and workshops at OCAC, and they were all superb.
They have excellent instruction and the facilities are fantastic.
They have every piece of equipment you could possible ever want to
learn to use. Christine Clarke is the head of the metals department
and you could not ask for a better instructor,Many of my friends
have taken classes there and all have been completely satisfied and
are now doing excellent work based on the skills they acquired while
attending OCAC. Hope this helps . Good luck. Alma
