The procedure might vary slightly depending which version of OSX you have, but in general, go to system preferences (should be in the dock, or if not, click the apple logo at the top left, then go down to system preferences. Then find the "network" section of system prefs and click it.  Find the network interface you're using (ethernet for wired, airport for wireless, etc) and click on that interface.  The IP address should be listed on the right side of the preferences screen.

If you are using OS X, click the Apple icon in the top-left corner of the screen and select System Preferences.  Select the Network icon under the Internet & Network category.  Then select the network adapter you are using.

If you are using the Ethernet adapter, the right side of the window should show you the IP address as well as other network settings.

If you are using the AirPort adapter, you will need to click the Advanced near the bottom-right corner of the window.  Then select the TCP/IP tab and the IP address as well as other network settings will be listed.
