The Arkansas Fine Arts Curriculum Frameworks reflect the best contemporary philosophy and practices in arts education, provide courses that meet the needs of Arkansas students, and offer consistency of format and content across all disciplines and all levels. Updated in 2014 by a committee of arts educators representing all arts disciplines, all grade levels, and all areas of the state, the following standards allow students to create and perform or present original artistic work, as well as to respond and connect their own artistic work to that of other people and other cultures.
