Program Learning Outcome Statement

Students will develop a strong foundation in the visual arts through the study of concepts, skills and vocabulary which will enable them to create and understand art as a means of visual expression and communication.  Emphasis shall be placed on the appreciation, understanding and practice of art and design including:

  1.  Demonstrate foundation skills in the use of art process and media that enable  
     clear, creative visual communication.
  2.  Demonstrate the ability to think critically and creatively about visual art.
  3.  Articulate the significance of art history, contemporary culture and the global 
     perspectives in the making of art and design.
  4.  Prepare a portfolio for transfer, personal use or career development.

Outcomes Related to Transfer

Transfer of visual art classes is a central focus of CCRI's AFA course work. The Associate of Fine Arts in visual art is a solid foundation program equal in content and quality to major art programs throughout the country, which enables smooth transfer in studio art and art history.  Transfer often depends upon successful portfolio development and presentation. Students are advised to consult with faculty for optimal transfer success.
