Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

My project gives people an opportunity to see that a common object can be created in a way that transforms it into artwork. This way they can participate in the art world by admiring and/or collecting affordable little glass sculptures. I will measure outcome by data collection at the capstone event; attendance numbers and revenue. I also hope to gather more detailed information by talking with attendees.
