Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The goal of our project is to bring youth and adults together to enjoy a wide range of public art events and to increase their artistic awareness and skills. We want to emphasize the diverse talent in our community and share the finished products to a large audience. We expect that we'll attract around 30-50 people to our photography class and an additional 20 children to that class. We also anticipate that we will draw 150 to 200 people to each Thursday evening event.Our goals will be measured by a pre and post survey for all participants to measure the increase in artistic knowledge and skills. We expect 50% of those responding to identify an increase and we will also survey the audience at these events to measure if they have had an increase in their awareness of public art activities in their community. We expect 80% of those responding to have a favorable reaction to the public art activities.
