Teachers will experience reformatted Arts Education Standards that clearly connect to the artistic processes. They will have access to sample lesson plans for each grade-band and for each artistic discipline. Most excitedly, our community asked for student-friendly learning indicators that will compliment lesson plans and instructional implementation. These “I am learning” statements will enhance the learning environment in our arts classrooms and are designed to fit your district or charter instructional policies. The Arizona Academic Standards in the Arts are structured around four Artistic Processes designed to answer the question, “What do artist do?” The Artistic Processes are consistent across all arts disciplines: Dance, Media Arts, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts.
Please note: the 2022 process of reformatting the Academic Standards in the Arts and the creation of the supplemental instructional resources did not adjust the Arizona Board approved 2015 Arts Education standards in any content-related way.
