Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goals are to engage Community Support Program (CSP) members in making five artworks that foster a sense of community and to beautify the block. For the artist members of the CSP, goals are to give them an opportunity to create public art and to take on leadership roles in a large group project; for non-artist CSP members, the goals are to introduce them to the joys of making art and increase their involvement with the Community Support Program. We will track successful completion of the artworks, the number of people participating, and how many were new to making art. We will request feedback on a survey at the end of each workshop and at the overall project completion to assess level of art experience, interest in doing more such activities, and change in their sense of connection to the CSP.
