The logic model and participatory evaluation are two popular methods of conducting program evaluation. While both methods have their strengths, each has distinct weaknesses which can be ameliorated by combining them both together. This study utilizes the combined method to evaluate an out of school art program at a museum. The findings suggest that a combined approach utilizing both the logic model and participatory evaluation yields beneficial results with more accurate representation of program outcomes.

The program being evaluated in this dissertation is an out of school art program for teens in an art museum in a major metropolitan area. The available data was gleaned from a retrospective pre-post survey that was distributed to alumni of the program. The data analysis was performed using the Wilcoxon signed-rank test.
