Grand Marais Arts, in partnership with Minnesota Jewelry Arts Guild, will host a community learning opportunity, serving as a catalyst for innovative, participatory learning, and providing high-quality arts education to increase skills in and understanding of the jewelry arts for participants and the community. 1. Host 230 symposium and exhibit attendees. 2. Offer affordable learning activities including classes with nationally and regionally established jewelry artists. 3. Evaluative opportunities for learners to describe, interpret, and evaluate their work will be included. 4. Participant evaluations will give Grand Marais Arts direction for future jewelry arts programming. Increase future jewelry arts programming by 15% in 2016. The success of Grand Marais Arts' project will be evaluated through the following ways: 1. Track numbers of students and symposium participants. 2. Provide evaluation forms to workshops and symposium participants to gather feedback about attendees’ experiences. 3. This arts learning opportunity is in partnership with the Minnesota Jewelry Arts Guild, whose mission is to promote the work of its members and educate the general public about handmade jewelry. In conversation with Minnesota Jewelry Arts Guild, it became apparent that there are no established, pre-existing opportunities like this symposium for jewelry artists in our region. Grand Marais Arts' will debrief with Minnesota Jewelry Arts Guild and continue to partner with them into the future.
