Learners benefited from free and low-cost arts access that deepened artistic knowledge, developed skills, and supported the creation of book art. MCBA’s participant evaluations include numerical rankings of instruction, content, student expectations, and arts learning. A vast majority ranked all categories at 5 (Strongly Agree). Commentary praised access to quality studios, and teaching that inspired deepened learning and the continued creation of work; for example, Instructor helped everyone crystallize ideas for their book and offered insights beyond what we could see and was genuinely kind and respectful of everyone’s level of work. 2: Minnesota artists strengthened creative, technical, and conceptual skills in class and at a symposium, and raised their work’s visibility in exhibition. MCBA’s Comprehensive Program Evaluation Plan (CPEP) follows a logic model in a team approach to planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of MCBA initiatives. CPEP measures of teaching success include learner evaluations and post-workshop evaluations by faculty. Indicators include: quantitative rankings of quality instruction, knowledge gained and expectations met; and qualitative feedback concerning learner-specific issues and interest in continued book arts involvement.
