Abstract
This research challenges the notion of evaluation as being necessarily reductive, judgmental and often leading to ill-fated results by using creative methods to evaluate a nonprofit arts-based children's program. Using photography as an ethnographic approach to form the basis of in-depth interviews and by collaboratively creating an artwork from participants' photos, the results of the research reveals that evaluation can be an elightening and rewarding experience for stakeholders and evaluators alike. In addition, this research provided a nonprofit arts-based children's program with a useful, comprehensive evaluation and it encourages further exploration into creative evaluative techniques.
