Arkansas Fine Arts Curriculum Framework. Strands: Visual Arts-Revised 2001; Music-Revised 2001; Dance; Theatre.
Arkansas State Dept. of Education, Little Rock.
This curriculum framework exists to guide the fine arts curriculum in grades K-12 in Arkansas public schools. The framework's student learning expectations are specific to what all students in those grades should know and be able to do in the arts (visual arts, music, dance, theater) during that span of years. The framework's content standards (Inquire, Explore, Discover; Create; Reflect, Respond, Rediscover) represent a cyclical process for art making and responding to art. All components of the framework are interrelated, with no particular order of importance because each is dependent on the other. The framework first delineates content standards for the visual arts strand of fine arts, stating what is expected of students at grades K-4, grades 5-8, and grades 9-12. It provides a visual art glossary and visual art scenarios. The framework provides similar information for the music strand, for the dance strand, and for the theater strand. (BT)
