Arts/Cultural Heritage Grant

The target audience is high school students through senior citizens. New skills will be acquired in various art mediums. Teachers will be given the opportunity to grow in their ability to teach their art passion and learn how to inspire others. There will be a measurable increase in classes, participants, and studio memberships. Participants will fill out surveys at the end of a class to determine what skills they learned and how they perceived the experience working with their artist-teacher. A class administrator will observe the class atmosphere; making special note of student engagement, skills learned, teaching methods, and the quality of the hands-on experiences the artists provided.
We had 45 adults and 8 youth participate and of those 8 became regular studio members. From their surveys and from observation of the classes by the project director, we saw students grow in their confidence and knowledge as artists. Not only did they learn new skills and techniques, but they were excited about the art-making process.
