Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Continue to provide opportunities for age appropriate arts projects for children in our schools. Provide quality programs for appropriate ages. See continued support for other projects from young adults who come to this event because their children are involved. Continue to instill arts in our communities and school. The FOTA council will meet to evaluate the success of the project. A great deal will be learned by number of children involved and attendance. The decision will then be made whether to offer this learning project again. Last year's success led us to offer another opportunity.
