Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Those participating in this mural project will grow in their artistic skills and knowledge and will have a sense of ownership in not only the project but the community itself. Artists will grow in their ability to instruct and inspire others, especially the mentors. Mentors will increase their skill in working with others and grow in their artistic ability. The many community members and visitors will be encouraged by the message of heritage and hope for the community and will recognize their responsibility to be a part of making that happen.We will provide questionnaires about community for the community forum and gatherings. Self-evaluation sheets will be provided for those participating in the mural design and creation asking them to comment on how the activity has made them feel about community and what they have experienced that has increased their knowledge of painting and creating with others.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Mentors flourished with the instruction. Community members and visitors from the surrounding area stopped by and commented on the mural. The community is proud of it. Self-evaluations by the participants said they enjoyed the experience and definitely felt part of the community building doing the mural. Kids felt important being able to help paint and loved being involved, especially mixing colors. Older kids mentored younger kids. Participants described learning about adding lines for detail and creating things large to be seen from a distance. They thoroughly enjoyed working with the artist.
