The interrelationship of artistic knowledge and processes defines artistic literacy. Engaging Students in the Arts can help educators bring arts into the classroom, allowing students to integrate arts with other subject areas.
The 2008 arts standards must be implemented by the 2010-2011 school year for districts who have adopted the state standards. The Perpich Center for Arts Education provides guidance on developing local arts standards.
