ACHF Arts Access
The project goals are to get 16 adult, 8 post-secondary students and 6 secondary student participants for the weekend. To introduce and expose all participants to a variety of artistic approaches of the Raku process. Participants will meet other artists who are interested in Raku and have the information available to continue to explore Raku and they will revive and retain an interest in making artwork. This project will create positive exposure to the ceramic artist community. All participants will fill out a written evaluation form. We will pre-distribute evaluation forms to all presenters so that they can make note of any changes they would like to see in future events. And then we will ask presenters to complete their assessments of the workshop. We will do follow-up on-line evaluations with all participants about a week or two after the event to see if there are any additional comments they would like to add for further event planning.
All participants reported that they were satisfied, ranked the presentations a 5 out of 5, and indicated that they wanted to see the presenters return in the future. All indicated that they learned a lot about Raku, the art form and a variety of techniques. We just barely had sufficient attendees to meet budget objectives. We were able to control some expenses to meet the income that we had collected. There were in-kind donations by Craig Edwards the host and Dave Glenn the coordinator which reduced expenses to meet budget.
