Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

100 people 62 and over will experience the arts with this work. 75% will say they learned new arts skills from the artists teaching the classes. Participants will indicate they connected with seniors they didn't know prior to the classes. We will conduct pre and post-evaluation in written format for the post-and verbal for the pre. We will ask what they want to learn for the initial discussion and for the post-questions will be about what they learned and rating the class for satisfaction of the experience. We will use this for ongoing reflection and improvement.
