ACHF Arts Access
Minnesotans will grow and learn new skills by participating in creative arts experiences, led by practicing artists, in schools and community sites. Participant experiences will be tracked through online evaluations filled out by site contacts and artists and artists’ observations. Types of sites involved will be tracked in program records. 2: Minnesotans of many ethnicities, ages, and abilities will have access to COMPAS hands-on programs that are designed to meet their specific needs. We will track demographic information when possible, customer goals for programs and how well we met them, and modifications and customizations made to meet customer needs or goals.
Participants at eleven types of comm. sites learned a new skill (98%) and showed an increase in positive behaviors (93%) through a creative arts experience. Asked artists and customers (e.g. teachers, activity directors, etc.) to report on the art that was created and if new skills / information was learned. Tracked the types of organization in which programs were helpful. 2: Four to 90+ year olds, of many ethnicities and abilities, participated in programs. 97% of sites agree artist connected art to their goals/curriculum. Tracked demographics of our artists and (to the best of our ability) participants. Surveyed artists and customers about participant inclusivity and activities, customer service, and meeting site goals.
