Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To engage as many Minnesotans as possible in arts programming. Utilize student and parent evaluations.

Measurable Outcome(s)

A key part of Minnesota Conservatory for Arts' mission is to weave the arts into community life and offer programming that provides arts opportunities to people of all ages, ethnicities, and abilities, ensuring that the arts continue to thrive. We continued to provide classes and performance opportunities in our thriving dance division, expanded our music division, launched a visual art division, provided sixty students with financial aid, provided tuition-free classes, offered residency workshops for two local school groups, participated in thirteen new community outreach events, and formed new/continued community partnerships with the Minnesota Marine Art Museum and Winona County Community Education. Successful evaluation was accomplished through assessment meetings, statistical data (enrollment numbers, audience participants, community members served), and through anonymous, survey-based feedback.
