Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

After having viewed the sculpture walk in Sioux Falls students will be become much more aware of many types and examples of public art. They will learn about materials and methods used by the artists to make the sculptures. Viewing the sculptures will give students insight on how sculptors use the elements of art and principles of design to make a 3D piece of art. I will assign students a short paper on public art in which they will have to tell about three pieces of sculpture they saw on the field trip. Students will be asked specific questions in which they will need to list the artist's name, materials used in the piece, the meaning behind the piece, what art elements and principles were most apparent, and if they like the piece and why. I will also give a pre and post field trip survey to my art 1 class that will ask questions about what they know about public art.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I measure by observing the students during their class time and keeping track of who made what as far as clay tiles. Everyone made at least one clay piece for the mural. I grade according to how well time was used, Use of art elements and principals of design, creativity, and craftsmanship. In this project, I looked at how well students collaborated also.
