Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Kaddatz will establish a direct connection to the older adults and others managing chronic diseases that comprise the PioneerCare community. Instructional and activities staff will interview participants before program involvement to determine a baseline of their awareness and/or previous relationship with local arts organizations. 2: Program participants will develop confidence in their ability to create and display their art in a public setting. Instructional and activities staff will interview participants, both before and after their involvement in arts programming. Willingness to exhibit finished work in culminating art show will also serve as a measure.
