Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Rourke Art Academy has four primary goals: 1. To celebrate the history and the future of the arts in our region. 2. To engage our community in our artistic traditions through direct contact with the best regional talent. 3. To provide a public venue for our community's notable musicians, poets, writers, designers, architects, art historians, and visual artists to share their work, their vision, their craft, and their dreams with the citizens of our region. 4. To share artistic skills and techniques both basic and more advanced in our hands-on classes for underserved populations. Four of the hands-on workshops will target youth 16 and under, two of the hands-on workshops will target families, twelve of the hands-on workshops will target adults including college students and the elderly) and four lectures will target adults (including college students and the elderly).
