Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are engaged in arts education and learning opportunities increases. The quality and types of arts education and learning opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts learning are identified and addressed. A short online survey will be developed for students to answer a basic satisfaction question about each art and cultural field trip they attend. Staff will use the information gathered from these surveys to evaluate the successfulness of the grant and to see if goals were met. In addition to the online survey and transcripts, each student will be required to write a one page lifelong learning experience summary for each trip they attend or participate in a group discussion after the trip.
