Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

All Senior connection participants (adults 50 and over) will engage in various art classes and activities that will provide the opportunity to create with others and participate in an arts learning activity that would encourage art as an experience and an enjoyable activity. Participants will experience joy in creating and grow in their abilities in the various art disciplines.The program manager will monitor engagement and the positive impact the arts activity is having on participants by tracking skill development and growth.

Measurable Outcome(s)

All of the Senior Connection participants actively engaged in our art classes. They experienced a wide variety of art forms and activities. Their engagement was evident whether helping mosaic a wall-hanging, or painting watercolor cards. The program manager tracked each participant’s activity and how they enjoyed it each day.
