Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, many more local residents will be made aware of the art forms of their cultural heritage. Many will learn to appreciate rosemaling as a vital form of expression for the rural Minnesota dweller. We will survey workshop participants about changes in knowledge, attitudes and techniques by distributing a questionnaire to class participants at the close of the class. We will hold an exhibition of our work at the end of the workshop and invite the public to view and critique our work.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Everyone that participated in the workshop filled out an evaluation sheet. Comments included, "I learned that less paint is best, how to mix paint, clean and store brushes. Ruth's technique for holding the brush for overlay was very helpful." "I leaned so much about how to mix paint and about color theory. I understand now how different colors impact a color mix. I learned side-loading techniques and teardrop placement." "I learned that I must slow down and have a much lighter touch."
