Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Students will learn art history, subject matter selection, composition, use of the golden mean, perspective and aerial perspective, value, preparation of the gesso ground and board, use of a grid, charcoal sketching, grayscale and verdaccio underpainting, color mixing and theory, skin tone palettes, rendering a likeness of the subject, lighting, application of various mediums, anatomy, glazing, framing, & 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.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We used a survey to see what could have been improved and what worked with the class. The survey was given to each of the students and the completed surveys were reviewed. Most surveys showed that the class was excellent, the presenters knowledge ant teaching skills were excellent, the registration process was excellent, the facility was excellent. The areas we were the weakest in was the lighting in the facility and the refreshments (not part of the grant, people brought and shared).
