Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Working with Project FINE to increase the number and diversity of participants (Hmong, Hispanic) as well as the number and diversity of artists. This year we plan to include an African drum circle. We're also planning to include Hmong craft sessions. At the registration table, we will keep a count of participants including from diverse populations. As we do every year, we will survey the artists to gather a sense of their experience and advice on future Family Art Days.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The project met its goals of the volume of community participants.
