Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

25 students will have created, revised and critique paintings within the framework of abstraction, using the elements and principles of design as a guide. 25 students will have created, revised and critiqued drawings using abstraction and the elements and principles of design. 25 students will have bound 3 handmade books using simple binding techniques as well as longstitch and coptic binding. 12 Art Club students (possibly some duplicated from above) will participate in visual journaling games designed to facilitate critique and group dialogue. 1 art teacher will learn to use Instant Response methods as an approach to teaching abstraction across different mediums. 1 art teacher will refine techniques associated with hand bound books. 1 artist will gain experience leading a high school residency supported by a cooperating teacher. 30 staff members will learn about visual journaling as an important strategy for recording information presented in a classroom session. 75 community members will view the artworks made as a result of this residency at an exhibition held in conjunction with the school's winter concert.Rubrics will be used to grade the students' artwork. Process, intent, materials used, elements and principles of design are all measures of student success. Exit interviews will be conducted between the artist and each student group using a hybrid of the Perpich's Tuning measurement. The feedback will be recorded for the adults involved. Finally we'll conduct exit interview between the artist and classroom teacher towards the goal of improving the experience for future parties.
