The OSA is the leading centre for visual arts education and creative expression in the Ottawa region.

In 1879 by a group of prominent local citizens under the patronage of the Governor General, the Marquis of Lorne and his wife, the Princess Louise founded the Ottawa Art Association. The Association was determined to open as a school of art and design in the capital. Classes began in April of 1880 with 18 students enrolled in the Ottawa Art School, as it was then called. Over the next 100 years there were many changes and transitions to the school and its community, but the school survived and emerged from the war years as the Ottawa Municipal Art Centre. In 1976 the school was reorganized under its present name and in 1983 it moved into its present location in the By Ward Market district in Ottawa. In 2009 the school expanded with a second campus being added in the Shenkman Arts Centre in Orleans. In the 2016-17 school year there were 3,848 registrations in over a dozen different disciplines at both campuses.
