Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts will increase through providing a summer arts camp experience for youth in our community that has never been offered before. Evaluation will occur through a participant and artist questionnaire, personal observation of activities, and attendance numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Students and parents were impressed with the art camp that was held at Warren/Alvarado/Oslo in August. It was a great opportunity for students in our district and surrounding communities. We live in a small rural community and having these artists come and teach them was a wonderful opportunity. I did a questionnaire for the students and parents. I received 64 responses from students and 64 responses from parents. The questionnaires provided me with info if the students/parents were satisfied with art camp, what they liked least about it, what they would like offered if we offered art camp again, and space for comments and suggestions. Every student and parent enjoyed art camp. They all said they would attend next year and they all provided great feedback and ideas for next year. 3. Some students had never taken a photo on a digital camera or uploaded photos on a computer. The photography class gave students opportunity that they had never had before. Also the puppetry class made students realize that you can make art projects with items around your house, items that you would put in the trash. I think the most eye opening thing about these classes for students was teaching them how to think outside the box. It helped them find creativity they didn't know they had. Many were pleased to have a new activity/class for students in our community.
