Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The outcome of this project will allow Minnesota children and adults to participate in a scratch tile workshop and iron pour. Students will make relief sculptures using cast iron methods. Artists, students, friends, family and the public will be able to see the iron pour. At that time we will interview students, artists and the public and have them fill out surveys on site.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The goal was to provide access to the arts for more Minnesotans. 36 Minnesotans were introduced to a medium that they had never used before, the process of casting iron.
