Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Art I and 7th grade students will gain understanding of what a public artist is and what a public artist does. I will give both Art I and 7th graders a pre-survey and post-survey with questions pertaining to public art to measure what they learned from Anne about making public art. I will compare the 1st survey regarding public art given before Anne comes with the same survey given at the end of Anne's residency. The student's answers will reveal what the students gained in knowledge about public art and what a public artist does.

Measurable Outcome(s)

7th grade students were asked at the end of the residency what a public artist does? Each student responded with the correct answer. Also, all high school and 7th grade students successfully worked together in a collaborative manner to complete the tasks of cutting glass, applying the cut glass and ceramic pieces to the mural with the proper pressure and glue, applying grout so that there wasn't gaps, and wiping the excess grout off with rags to create a piece to be proud of. There was no complaining of who was doing what. This was an outcome measured through careful observation by me and Anne.
