Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program students will learn art history, subject matter selection, composition, use of the golden mean, perspective and aerial perspective, value, grounding the board, use of circle masks, grayscale and verdaccio underpainting, color mixing and theory, skin tone palettes, rendering a likeness of the subject, lighting, application of various mediums, glazing, and preservation of finished work. A feedback survey will be distributed to the students on the last day of class. This information will be compiled and shared with all students, the instructor, and included in the final report. A copy is attached.

Measurable Outcome(s)

12 students, aged 16 to Senior Citizens were able to benefit directly by taking the Jim Robinson workshop. The class was evaluated through the use of an online Survey Monkey evaluation. Those who responded to the evaluation gave the class great marks. I heard only positive things about Jim as an instructor and the class. It is really neat to have multi generations all learning together. The 4 youth we had in the class really gave the old-timers a feeling of energy and enthusiasm.
