ACHF Arts Education
The quantity and types of arts learning opportunities in the state, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Arts learning opportunities are more accessible to Minnesota because barriers to participation have been identified and mitigated. More Minnesotans are engaged in arts learning opportunities.
1) Minnesota Center for Book Art developed and presented ten weekend workshops and a free open house in communities around the state in partnerships with Owatonna Arts Center, MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids and Rochester Arts Center in Rochester. 2) We distributed evaluations at each workshop asking for feedback from participants on instructor knowledge and presentation and overall satisfaction of the workshop. We also handed out a survey to instructors and Art Center Staff. A survey from MacRostie Center indicated very positive - we were pleased to see so many people take advantage of the Minnesota Center for Book Art presence and take part in the projects." "A worthwhile and inspiring partnership for an organization - Thank ya for the opportunity!" Minnesota Center for Book Art also received unsolicited positive feedback via email and post. 2: 1) Minnesota Center for Book Art on the Road brought the book arts to meet audiences and students "where they are at" therefore removing the barrier of distance to three communities in greater Minnesota. Workshops were offered to registrants free of charge and the open houses were also free to the public. 2. This outcome was evaluated by reviewing the number of attendees at each location and the amount of visibility for the workshops that was noted in art center websites, newsletters and local media outlets. Our expectations were met overall, with the majority of workshops at capacity at each center."
