Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This project will increase the understanding, appreciation and artistic skill level of community youth. Great River Arts will present 52 sessions, a total of 170 hours of high quality, high-fun, well-conducted, creative, cutting edge, entertaining and educational art classes for approximately 645 youth and 150 adults from April 2017 to September 2017. We will use Google Forms for our end-of-class surveys. We will send a follow-up or exit email to the parents or participants to gather additional information and feedback that we use for future planning and decision-making. We will photograph classes and the artwork that is created so that we are able to use the photos as a promotional tool on our website, Facebook and Instagram pages. In addition to that, the photos will be helpful for grant reporting in the future. Upon completion of teaching a class, instructors are asked via email to review their class, working with the Great River Arts staff and what areas we can improve on for the next time they join us.
