Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The event is available and accessible to all in the community, both children and adults. The goal is to provide a hands-on opportunity for engagement in a wide variety of arts activities with artists not normally available to the public. Compare the number of contacts each artist can accommodate in an hour's time, and the number of contacts on actual sign-up sheets and artist reporting of contacts. Photos of the event will be included. A follow-up survey with artists is conducted.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We were once again able to provide a wide variety of art experiences for the community, serving both children and adults. Feedback from participants as well as the artist/teachers was positive with more adults participating in the activities.
