ACHF Arts Education
The quantity and types of arts learning opportunities in the state, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. More Minnesotans are engaged in arts learning opportunities.
Woodland Hills has only been able to offer theater programming with the support of the Minnesota State Arts Board, thus the type of arts learning opportunities at Woodland Hills was increased through this project. Additionally, of the arts learners who had previous theatre experience, 70% of those experiences occurred at their school, thus this project increased the venues in which youth could have arts learning opportunities. To measure the outcomes, arts learners took a pre-program survey collecting data on the frequency and venue of arts learning experiences before coming to Woodland Hills and arts learning opportunities at Woodland Hills. 2: Before participating in this project, 96% of students had never had an in depth theatre experience and only 38% of students had any experience in theatre. Following the completion of the project, 21% of participants said they would “definitely” participate in theatre outside of Woodland Hills, 32% said they were “interested”, and 42% said they “might” participate. Only 5% stated that they would “definitely not” participate in theatre in the future. It is our conclusion that this project introduced students to a new arts opportunity that many will pursue in the future. Our success at increasing participation was measured through pre and post program surveys. The surveys measured arts learning experiences before coming to Woodland Hills and assessed the likelihood of students choosing to participate in theatre arts learning experiences in the future.
