ACHF Arts Access
The project goals are to get 16 adult, 6 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, both in decoration and glazing of artwork, the firing process in different kilns and the different methods of post-reduction. Participants will meet other artists who are interested in Raku, they will 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 in the New London Clay Center and provide an audience base to build upon for continued and future events. All participants will be provided a written evaluation form at the workshop and highly encouraged to complete it prior to leaving. 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. Then we will ask presenters to complete their assessments of the workshop within three weeks so that we can gather fresh measured responses from the artist presenters. 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. Evaluation questions will be constructed to measure the goals identified by the project and will be measured by the different systems so that we can gather a good base of information for future planning. We will keep information on both actual attendance and comments received throughout the process to document numbers, listing notifications and opens of e-blasts.
A written evaluation was distributed electronically to all participants after the workshop had taken place. We received 11 responses from the 15 participants with high rankings in all areas.
