Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

RRAC is expecting 80 to 150 people a month to participate in the Free Family Art Day and Kids Art Fun Nights, and another 250 people to participate in Ramsey art in the park events. Audience surveys will show that 60% respondents experienced a family art project for the first time and that 85% of the participants found themselves absorbed by the art process. The evaluation plan will look at participant count including new versus repeat participants for monthly programs. RRAC will use google feedback survey forms to collect data from participants to evaluate how satisfied the participants were with the various programs.
