Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, upper elementary students and high school students will learn about abstract painting, clowning and theater and spoken word from artists, Heidi Jeub, Benjamin Domask and See More Perspective. Evaluation will occur through a questionnaire for students and staff. This will include questions about if they learned more about the art form, if they enjoyed the residency and open ended response questions to share about their experiences with the artist and the residency. We will also check audience numbers and have contact with artists and staff to learn of successes and needs.
