Woodcarvers attending the class will gain new insight into the art of carving; each will carve an item that will exceed their previous skill level. The Showcase will expose the community to Janet Cordell, local artists, and the art of woodcarving. At the end of class sculptures will be verbally critiqued by students. A survey will be given at the beginning of the class for the students to self-evaluate their skill level. These surveys will be revisited and collected at the end of the class in order to measure the change in skill level.
The self-evaluations showed improvement in the areas tracked: carving technique, design ability, finishing skills and overall skill level. Most improved in 3-4 categories. All wrote or said they learned things not tracked. All would take a class again. Exhibit attendance and reaction was tracked by a tally taken at the door and a guest book. 88 people came, doubling previous club events. Introducing artistic woodcarving and the artists to the community was accomplished.
