Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, members of our community and guests of festival, young and old, will have a new awareness and appreciation of Jazz, Blues, Folk Music; and clay, mosaics and painting. Hands on painting, pottery, and mosaics accessible. Evaluation will occur through a follow-up meeting with planners and the participating art teachers, counting actual numbers of youth and adults taking part in art making. Art project results will be uploaded to the Goose Fest Facebook page for participants to view. Bookmarks with Goose Fest Facebook info will be free and handed out to participants. Viewers to Facebook will be encouraged to ‘Like’ and ‘Comment’ their experiences. Also, we will count audience members at the musical performances.
