Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goal is to bring a quality writers resource, support group, and networking opportunity to people in the nine county area and beyond, and to be dependable to accommodate the interests and preferences of the writing community as expressed in surveys and other contact we have had with them through our submission process, festivals, conferences, and other reading events throughout the preceding yearWe give an evaluation sheet at the end of each workshop. We can add technology questions about how helpful it was to them. Did they like the use of the camera and the TV with the art demos? Were they able to see the techniques, various lines, and values better by having the camera and TV? We can keep track of the number of people attending the workshop to see if we have an increase. We can take pictures of the artwork that people approve, so we can see their accomplishments.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The first workshop, they were pleased with the projection system, but they felt it was at an angle using it on the tripod. (We had just bought the camera and didn't have time to make a stand for the first workshop.) They also wanted the TV to be put to the side of the artist and to have it up higher. So the club had a stand made with the camera directing straight down and the TV was put on a stand that was higher up for the next workshop. The second evaluation, everyone was so pleased with having a projection system, and they thought it was perfect. Again I personally interviewed the participants and the instructors.
