Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

With the funding I plan to purchase a quality printing press, rollers and other printmaking materials to get back into working with a medium that I have been unable to do for many years. The purchase of these materials will allow me to advance to the next stage of my career as an exhibiting artist. My plan is to research and create a series of large scale monoprint-mixed media prints that will be part of 2 solo shows at the PRCA and LRAC Solo Gallery in 2014. With the purchase of this equipment and material I will also be able to teach a printmaking class during the 2014 Prairie Camp, the week long summer arts camp for school aged children in the Morris area.1. By exposing my work to the public through the solo exhibition and entrance into other show and galleries. 2. A pre and post survey to the students and attendees of Prairie Camp to measure their artistic experience, skills learned and enjoyment of the class.

Measurable Outcome(s)

1. Through the last year I have had 4 solo shows, Prairie Renaissance Cultural Alliance, Elbow Lake Public Library, Altered Esthetics in Minneapolis, and the Lake Region Arts Council Solo Gallery. I feel that participation in these show has advanced me to the next stage of my artistic career and have provided future artistic opportunities. 2. The pre-survey at Prairie Camp yielded that only 2 of the 18 students knew what printing making was and 0 knew about mono-printing. The post-survey results yielded that they learned about printmaking techniques, especially mono-printing. They also learned new artmaking skills and overall enjoyed the class.
