Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

My goal is to offer new classes for advanced glass art students at my home studio. I will teach seven five-week sessions with 8 - 10 students in each session from September to May, totaling approximately 70 students. The classes will take place one hour per week, with additional drop-in times available for independent work.I will collect evaluations from students at the end of each 5-week session, asking them about the quality of their experience, their personal growth and development of style. Each student at my studio has their own portfolio. Pre and post peer to peer critiques and showcasing students on our website will measure increased ability and growth. I will also measure success by the excitement, and more people that sign up for the classes.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The results were very favorable and I will continue the classes, since I'm still hearing good input and questions as to when is the next class going to be.
