Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project high school English students will have the opportunity to express themselves and gain skills in the art of photography. Evaluation will occur through a participant questionnaire for students and staff, follow up meeting with the planners, interviews with the artist, observations and audience numbers at the spring art show.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Students were challenged by the artist with "thinking outside the box". 75% of students rose to the challenge. Posts were made on the Facebook site created for Tri-County Schools called FREEZE FRAME. The questionnaire was completed as an oral survey. Student learned what to look for in photographic subjects. Student lives were changed by sharing their work with the public on the Facebook site as well as displaying work in the spring at the Tri-County Spring Arts Show.
