Arts

The following statement is from the Office of Superintendent of Public Education (OSPI) on the adoption of The Arts K–12 Learning Standards for Dance, Media Arts, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts.

The state of Washington recognizes that the arts are an integral part of every student’s educational experience. The 2017 Arts K–12 Learning Standards for Dance, Media Arts, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts provide a framework for effective K–12 arts education by setting out a coherent structure for building students’ knowledge, understanding, and skills, while also encouraging them to explore and express their own creativity. These standards include the National Core Arts Standards, along with additional content developed by K–12 educators in the arts. These educators came together from across the state to participate in the Arts Cadre, which developed “suggestions for students” and “examples” to accompany the standards, thereby providing more specificity and practical ideas for demonstrating the knowledge and skills indicated.
