Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Learn tech skills, use of alternative medias on my large format printer via tutelage, on site demos, tips from Epson tech who lives nearby. Evaluation based on the technical and artistic quality of my resulting mixed media prints determined by my standards and pre-exhibition peer critique. 2: Creation and solo exhibition in a professional/public setting of Form+Content Gallery in Minneapolis. Formal and informal audience and peer review, anonymous comment-box, guest-book, gallery-talk/dialogue, website response, self-reflection and outreach to critics/curators(to hopefully elicit formal media review).
