Major learning outcomes and assessment measures
Students graduating with a BFA in painting and drawing should have:
A successful student should be prepared for graduate school and, in some cases, direct professional practice. The successful student will have an understanding of the artistic and creative process, applicable to any field of endeavor as well as a knowledge of art history and contemporary studio practice; a personal voice and artistic direction, and the tools to make a life in the arts.
Attainment of these competencies is demonstrated in senior projects and in the success of alumni/ae of the program after graduation. Many painting and drawing graduates work in the field as practicing professionals: artists, teachers, designers, and museum staff. The acceptance into graduate programs, the prestige of these programs, exhibition in commercial galleries and museums, and participation in the “art world” are measures used to assess the learning outcomes.
