Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. To create an origami using wet folding techniques by October 2012. 2. To fold origami models that involve small folds by January 2013. 3. To find ways to preserve my best origami by November 2012. 4. To create oversized origami model by December 2012. 5. Go to Origami USA Convention in New York City by June 2012.After learning how to do new folds and techniques I will practice the steps until I get good at them. When I have completed a model I will find someplace, like the library or art gallery to display them. I would also teach others how to do them as a way to show that I know how to complete the models. I will submit my best origami in the Origami by children contest. The contest is sponsored by Origami USA. I will take pictures of my origami and give them to the Southwest Minnesota Arts and Humanities. I have made several YouTube videos before and will make more showing my new skills.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This study allowed me to learn new techniques that are helpful when folding. It also inspired me to further my study seeing all the cool things more advanced people could make. The Marshall Area Fine Arts Council noticed that I had received the grant and
