Program Review

Mission Statement

The Westmont Art Department educates students and our larger community about the power and value of the visual arts in our world through physical, critical, and spiritual engagement with the creative process and its results.

Program Learning Outcomes

The links below lead to information about the department's most recent assessment of student learning relative to our program learning outcomes.

As a result of what they have learned in their art program, graduates will be able to do the following:

  1. Core Practices: Students will demonstrate independent, creative exploration in various media and in the history and theory of the visual arts.
  2. Core Sensibilities: Students will demonstrate a critical appreciation of the roles that artists and their art have played, and continue to play, in our world, and a discerning grasp of the contours of our current art world.
