Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This project will provide access to more Minnesotans because new resources will be developed that can be used and taught in classes and also made available through my blog. The project will also provide a collaboration with art centers and nature centers. Outcomes will be measured by the number of persons at the capstone artists' reception and comments. Also by the number of requests for classes and the number of participants in the classes. Interviews will also be done and posted on my blog.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I worked with Michel Garcia to develop a chemistry based research model that can be used in the future. This is significant as it is a model I can use when developing future methods.
