The curriculum in Art Education is aligned with the National Visual Arts standards, which describe what all students should understand and be able to do as a result of their cumulative learning experiences. Students should be able to communicate proficiently in the visual arts, develop and present basic analyses of works of visual art, and have an informed acquaintance with exemplary works of visual art from a variety of cultures and historical periods.
The National Visual Arts Standards state that students should (1) understand and apply visual arts media, techniques, and processes; (2) use knowledge of visual arts structures and functions; (3) choose and evaluate a range of subject matter, symbols, and ideas; (4) understand the visual arts in relation to history and cultures; (5) reflect upon and assess the characteristics and merits of their works and the work of others; and (6) make connections between visual arts and other disciplines.
