Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Through this project we will engage 180 students at seven local Minneapolis public schools in visual arts education after school programming during the 2018-2019 school year. At least 90% of post-program self-evaluations for student participants will reflect a feeling of increased confidence in new or improved art-making skills. We evaluate our programming in real time with our teaching artists and site directors to allow us to address any unique individual student or class accommodations that may arise during a session and then work with the schools to make immediate changes or document and apply changes to future programming. We document the number of students who participate in programming at each of the seven partner sites and each student and teaching artist fills out a pre and post-evaluation, which captures a student's personal experience in the class, student perception of art skills development/improvement, student's desire to continue participation in arts programming in the future, teacher's observations of skill development in students and are teachers observing students learning the core target areas of curriculum.
