Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases by aiming for 25 children participating (up from 19 last year), and increase by three new families. Evaluation will occur through a participant questionnaire; notes related to personal observation; and audience, artist, and youth count.

Measurable Outcome(s)

New families (not involved last year) numbered four, one more than our goal of 3. Attendance was greater than last year because of the new families participating that added to the audience. Questionnaires were given to the older children and 11 were returned. All stated that it was a positive learning experience and ten said they would hope to be a part of it next year. The one would prefer to be involved the behind the scenes with sound or lights.
