Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Minnesota artists are able to expand or further develop their artistic abilities through varied learning opportunities. Minnesota artists are able to develop business skills needed to support their professional art work. More Minnesotans are able to engage in or with the work of Minnesota artists.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Through the intellectual and physical effort of learning these programs, I became a far better artist and musician, resulting in increased business opportunities for myself. 2: By creating a website and other materials to promote my programs, and by making contacts with Minnesota organizations and individual musicians, I have developed my own business skills.
