Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To research and create a series of eight large scale wood and Linoleum cuts ranging from 2’x4’ to 4’x8’ for two solo shows. To look for other venues to display these large scale works. To advance to the next stage of my career as an exhibiting artist. To be the lead artist for two street roller events that will introduce children in these two communities to printmaking. 1. By exposing my work to the public through the solo exhibition and entrance into other show and galleries, 2. A post survey to the attendees of the street roller events to measure their artistic experience, skills learned and enjoyment of the event.
