How were the participating students to be chosen? Would they volunteer to commit to the 10  weeks?  Would teachers prefer to involve the whole class and use the curriculum as part of their regular teaching method?  Would teachers prefer to use the curriculum as a special, once a week activity for students?  (Each teacher would choose their own preference.)

Teachers were asked to give some form of feedback each week so that a comprehensive evaluation of the curriculum could be determined.  (Teachers were given a questionnaire for fill out each week.)

Did we want to measure the affect, if any, of visual art on students’ test scores?  It was decided that we were not so interested in numbers, but changes in student attitudes and motivation, as well as day-to-day improvement in the quality of their work.
