Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of the program, new emerging artists will experience instruction provided by accomplished artists which will increase the artists' knowledge of the art medium that is taught. These emerging artists will gain confidence in the art medium they are having instruction in and will be encouraged to exhibit their art in the local library at one of our monthly art exhibits. We will be in contact with participants’ pre, post, and during the activity with surveys and interviews with both teaching artists and workshop participants. Each of our board members will assist at a workshop of their choice. We like to have at least one board member in attendance on the first and last day of a workshop to take care of general questions and making sure everyone is comfortable. At the end of the workshop, this same board member will hand out evaluations and collect them. At the end of each workshop - the whole board discusses the workshop and things that could have been better organized (if any) and ways to improve our delivery.
