Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Short-term outcomes include: 1. At least 60 Harbor City International School students, 40 College of Saint Scholastica students, and 20 community members will participate in creating two murals during the 2016-2017 academic year. 2. At least 75 Harbor City International School and College of Saint Scholastica students will demonstrate increased understanding about the steps and techniques involved in creating a mural. Select participants will share their experiences publicly at the celebratory unveiling event. 3. At least 500 students and community members will attend the celebratory unveiling event in April 2017. In the long term, the project will increase regional youth and community interest in painting and mural-making, and reinforce art’s ability to celebrate empowerment and community. We will determine outcomes through various avenues. First, we will ask all participants to complete brief final surveys which will include questions such as: Did this project enhance your understanding of mural painting and/or art in general? Based on this experience, are you more interested in public art? What was your favorite part of the project? Will this experience encourage you to participate in future community art projects? Additionally, Teaching Artists and Harbor City International School's Art Director will observe learning that occurs through the project and student engagement with the interactive portions. Documentary interviews conducted by a videographer will serve as a third way to assess these outcomes.
