Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. Students will be able to demonstrate a basic understanding of the history, theory, and/or application of an artistic medium/area. 2. Students will be able to identify and describe a range of approaches (artists/styles) from a medium/area. 3. Students will experience the creative process and exhibit a creative approach to problem-solving. 4. Students will be able to exercise informed aesthetic or critical judgment. 5. Students will describe how the arts reflect and influence the individual and society.The core group of students in all Art Department classes will participate in graded classroom discussions, written responses, and, in some cases, art historical and theoretical papers that demonstrate their understanding of contemporary environmental artists and art works, the process of making public art, and the mixture of concepts and techniques found in environmental art. The half of the core group that will work with Mr. Dougherty on building the sculpture will, through volunteering and in-class projects that involve their own small-scale installations and drawings, show their understanding of how to select and use environmental art media and how to work collaboratively or meet collaboratively-created goals. Some of these evaluation methods will be used in future Art Department classes that will continue some of the observation, analysis, and imitation of Mr. Dougherty's installation throughout its lifetime.
