Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Short-term outcomes include: 1. At least 100 North Shore Community School students, 40 College of Saint Scholastica students, and ten community members will participate in creating a mural during 2018-2019. 2. At least 60 North Shore Community School students and 40 College of Saint Scholastica students will work on the project from beginning to end, and will demonstrate increased understanding of the techniques involved in creating a mural, and the role of murals in fostering and celebrating community. 3. At least 300 students and community members will attend the community unveiling events in April 2019. We will determine outcomes through various avenues. First, all participants will complete brief surveys at the beginning, middle, and end including both qualitative and quantitative questions to measure growth. Teaching Artists and North Shore Community School Art Teacher will also share observations on learning that occurs and student engagement with the interactive portions. Documentary interviews conducted by a videographer will serve as a third way to assess these outcomes.
