Standards of Learning Objectives for Virginia Public Schools: Art.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
Developed by the state of Virginia, six educational goals to develop concepts, skills, and positive attitudes related to art elements and principles, responses to art and art objects, and the production of artwork are outlined. These goals and objectives pertain to four roles that the student assumes when engaged in art experiences: that of aesthetician, art historian, artist-creator, and consumer. The standards of learning objectives emerge from the educational goals and are outlined for each grade level. In the elementary grades every child should be exposed to a variety of media and techniques in mastering art objectives. The time allotted to middle school art varies. Those objectives considered most important are highlighted and should be stressed when students have less art time. The objectives for senior high school are contained in four courses: art foundations, advanced art, art heritage, and crafts. (KM)
