Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Youth and adult learners will participate in art learning classes and acquire new skills in that art medium and be inspired to participate in ongoing classes to expand on their art experiences and skill. Teachers will be given the opportunity to grow in their ability to teach their art passion and learn how to inspire others.Class participants will fill out a short survey at the end of their class as to what new skills they learned, what their experience was like with the artists, and whether they enjoyed their experience. Class administrators will observe the class atmosphere and student engagement and evaluated the skills learned, teaching methods used, and the quality of the hands on experiences the artists provide.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Through survey responses and instructor observation, it was noted that participants gained skill and experience in mosaic design, watercolor and acrylic painting, raku and firing techniques, brushstrokes and other painting and creating techniques. Instructors were challenged to work with participants of various skill levels.
