Arizona Visual Arts Essential Skills.
Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
The intent of this document is to provide local school districts with a guide to current knowledge in the visual arts, such that by using the guide, districts should be able to develop their own curriculum documents tailored to the needs of their students. The basic premise of the guide is that each student in the state of Arizona should have access to a quality art education which includes art as a discipline involving a definite body of knowledge developed through scope and sequence. The quality components of art education are: (1) creative art expression; (2) aesthetic assessment; and (3) art in cultural heritage. For each of four levels (K-3, 4-6, junior high/middle, high school), goals, objectives, skills, procedures, outcomes and evaluation are formulated within each of the three components. An appendix featuring a list of visual arts resources and a selected bibliography for art education is included. (DB)
