Measurable Outcome(s)

Workshop 1 (painting on fabric) did not fulfill everyone's expectations but most participants were pleased with their experience. Workshop 2 (making natural dyes and egg tempera w/ plants and flowers) was very well received by all. Participants lingered afterwards to talk with the instructor and continue their experiments. Workshop 3 (poetry and photography) occurred during windy, wet weather but participants were happy to learn from the artists. Workshop 4 (puppet and mask making) was extremely well received. A picnic and parade of masks in the Native American Garden brought everything together. Workshop 5 (avant-garde knitting styles) was postponed to a week night in September and attendance was low but participants were enthusiastic.
