Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. To work with four young apprentice teaching them the wood sculpting process from beginning to end, 2. To provide public demonstrations of the process at community settings to teach demonstration skills to the apprentices, 3. To demonstrate this project to art classes at public schools, (I am contacting Wheaton and Fergus Falls Schools because two of the younger apprentices are from these school districts).As we are putting on our demonstrations I will have a comment book available for the public to sign.
