Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Students will indicate interest in the experience through classroom discussion and a general survey. Teaching materials and gained student and teacher experience are vital to continued STEM learning. Staff will determine satisfaction level to find improvement in students illustration skills.We will use mailed surveys and interviews with students to record their experience in the residency and their interest in participating in a residency in the future. We will use an online survey for our staff members to indicate their level of satisfaction of the residency.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Survey results demonstrated that a large number of students learned quite a bit about printmaking from our artist. Overwhelmingly our students enjoyed having an artist come to teach them a new way to make art and the majority would like to have a similar experience in the future.
