Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

I will grow the scale of my work and learn new construction techniques for making 3-D paper structures to be installed on the wall. I will evaluate this outcome based on the success of creating and installing this new 3-D paper work in the RCTC gallery, as well as my ability to exhibit this work in other spaces. 2: I will redesign my website to promote my work, add a marketplace for direct purchase of my work and promote myself through other calls for entry. Using Google Analytics, I will track traffic and page views at my site. I will also gauge my success by the number of opportunities I apply to and am accepted in during the grant period.
