33 women and 55 children attended the artist in residence sessions. There was regular attendance as much as possible. However when dealing with people in crisis, there are often other issues they must attend to. The feedback from the surveys was very positive. The residents and children did create artworks for their personal use. There was an exhibition at the Saint Cloud Public Library to display the works and talk about this project.
