Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

It will build relationships with members of groups that have been underserved by the arts. I will look at the art I sent to the council and compare them to the art that I made at the art classes. This will show me how much I have learned. I will at least make eight paintings at the art class and I will post them on my parent’s Facebook. I will also have a showing of my work at the Pipestone heritage festival. I think at least 1700 people will benefit from my art. I believe these lessons will help me in my art and look forward to showing everyone what I have learned.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I impacted Pipestone and I put my stuff on mnartists.org to allow people to view my work.
