Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Real or perceived barriers to arts education are addressed by hosting this camp; participants will learn one new thing about arts and culture that living in a rural town has previously prohibited them from experiencing. Evaluation will occur through a participant questionnaire, notes related to personal observation, and audience and participant counts.

Measurable Outcome(s)

By a raise of hands every day drumming was by far the most liked class that was held. Many students had never seen or used an African drum. 41 of 65 students/parents returned the paper take home survey: 100% of students/parents enjoyed art camp and would come back/send their children next year. Preference of the 41: 16 drumming, 13 mask making, 12 fiber arts collage. 98 parents attended our art show on the last day. That was a huge success.
