Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Audiences will have access to the arts and arts experiences, artists will gain exposure and recognition via the demonstrations and display opportunities, and the arts will have a stronger presence in the community, stimulating future art activities. Community workshop participants and presenters will fill out a survey to evaluate what they gained from their experience.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We had 77 individuals attend four demonstrations on rosemaling, basket weaving, pottery, and beading. We also had 9 articles printed in the local newspaper and had good attendance. According to the surveys (35) participants and presenters enjoyed the workshop and learned new things. Most surveys were scored 5 out of 5 for enjoyment and learning.
