This study investigated how students perceive the contributory role of the CAPSTONE activity in developing changemaker attributes in an Art Appreciation course. A total of 123 students completed pre-and post-surveys, rating the perceived value of the CAPSTONE activity in promoting innovation and creativity, critical thinking, communication, leadership, and collaboration. Results showed a significant improvement in all the changemaker attributes after completing the activity. Gender did not significantly affect perception, but there were significant differences among students grouped according to year level and academic program. Open-ended questions revealed that students believed the CAPSTONE activity could help develop their skills in problem-solving, creativity, advocacy, and social awareness, among others. Overall, the study highlights the potential of CAPSTONE activities in promoting changemaker attributes among students.
