Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, school aged children will have an emotional reaction to creating art and music, and will gain knowledge and skills to create and perform that art. Evaluation will occur through written/ or verbal questionnaires with the students, artists and planners, counting audience numbers and personal observation and student emotional reaction to the residency.

Measurable Outcome(s)

100% of students felt they had learned more about folk music and sculpture. Students also felt they learned about science while doing the sculpture residency. Students and teachers enjoyed both experiences. The audience for the Ross Sutter performance with students brought nearly 100 parents and community members. Students clearly had FUN performing and sharing what they had learned during the week.
