Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in art increases through our students producing watercolor paintings based on what they learn using techniques, vocabulary, and mechanics of drawing. Evaluation will occur through notes on informal observations of whether their work depicts an understanding of techniques, participant count, and a participant questionnaire.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The elementary students who participated in these activities were provided opportunities to be taught visual art techniques in pencil and water color from an actual artist. This was a great experience for our students. We do not have an art teacher in the elementary grades.
