Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project school age students learned new art mediums that they wouldn't have been exposed to without this camp.Students were excited to experience these classes and they are excited for the opportunity to attend in the future. Evaluation will occur through a survey given to the students and parents, counting participants for the camp, and art show attendees.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goal was to have sixty participants for this camp art and more older students, and we exceeded our goal. Questionnaire for participants and their parents showed positive feedback, enjoyment of camp, and ideas for next year. Most Camp Art participants had never experienced the new art mediums offered. Spoken word poetry taught expressing yourself with words, video with photography, and comic book creation allowed the students to think outside the box and be creative.
