This project will result in heightened awareness of art in the community as well as an increase in access in the arts for homeless community members. It will also increase the perception among participants of art as a tool for self-expression. Participants will gain skill, knowledge, and self-confidence through this mural paining workshop. Skills gained through working with established artist Wesley May will continue to be used in the participants’ lives. The ripple effect of art awareness will reach beyond the participants to the participants' families who will have an increased appreciation for the value of art.Participant responses to what they have learned will be gathered via a survey on the last day of class indicating an increase in arts skills and awareness through participation in this workshop.
For a more effective response rate, the project manager observed each session and interviewed participants rather than request participants fill out a survey. The outcomes achieved through this program included: families learned the proper technique of planning and painting a mural; families gained confidence in their ability to plan and paint; families took pride in their accomplishments.
