Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

By offering encounters with a diverse and skilled group of artists, the project provides access to the arts and increases the variety of the arts available to students from school districts whose limited resources could not provide a similar experience. We will note the number of attendees from outlying school, the diversity of artistic offerings, and quantitatively and qualitatively evaluate survey responses, both written and anecdotal, for use of internal improvement of the program.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The students were provided opportunities to express themselves, were inspired by professional writers, and returned to their schools with new found skills to share with others.
