The Connecticut Curriculum Trace Maps are designed to help curriculum developers and teachers translate Connecticut's K-12 performance standards into objectives and classroom practice. The Trace Maps provide detailed descriptions of what students should know and be able to do at smaller grade level clusters, K-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12.

Content standards for the visual arts are: (1) media: students will understand, select, and apply media, techniques, and processes; (2) elements and principles: students will understand and apply elements and organizational principles of art; (3) content: students will consider, select, and apply a range of subject matter, symbols, and ideas; (4) history and cultures: students will understand the visual arts in relation to history and culture; (5) analysis, interpretation, and evaluation: students will reflect upon, describe, interpret, and evaluate their own and others' work; and (6) connections: students will make connections between the visual arts, other disciplines, and daily life.
