Notable Changes to Visual Arts (adopted 2022): 

The review committee made the following recommended changes that were adopted by the State Board. 

Revision Applicable to All Grades: 

  • Changed the language in the Prepared Graduate Statements, specifically statement 6 and 8, to address public feedback and make interdisciplinary and career/workforce readiness connections, and to create greater coherence and alignment.

Revision Applicable to 6th through 8th Grade: 

  • Due to the nature of visual art standards, the standards were organized by performance levels instead of specific grade levels.
    • Change of 6th grade to Middle School Level 1
    • Change of 7th grade to Middle School Level 2
    • Change of 8th grade to Middle School Level 3
