Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, the students of Red Lake Middle School will benefit by discovering how integrating art into self-expression can help them reach their full potential, become more resilient, and become self-empowered. As a result of this program, the citizens of the Red Lake Nation will benefit when the Red Lake Middle School students go into the community with greater hope for the future, respect for community, and an ability to create art in one of its many forms. We will measure progress toward the benefit by surveying participants, and analyzing collected artifacts from the residency.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Students had a wonderful experience and learned about creative expression, as expressed in their surveys and verbal interviews. They indicated that they learned they could deal with problems by writing about them, and writing light-hearted silly songs can alleviated stress and lighten a mood. Students learned that they have more control over their emotions/feelings than they thought.
