Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of school age children attending Camp Art, their knowledge and skills related to writing poetry, appreciating folk music, and creating visual art will increase. Evaluation will occur through questionnaires given to the audience at the art show, evaluations given to the students on the last day of the camp, a meeting on Thursday night after the art show with the artist who have been teaching and my own notes on the experience.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The kids that came rarely missed a day and were so enthusiastic about the experience and what they were learning! I have never had kids work so hard during the week. More people viewed the website than have ever done so before. The artists who came were so excited about the attendance at the art show on Thursday night and the enthusiastic participation of the audience! All of us left knowing more about ourselves and those around us through the activities of the week.
