New National Visual Art Standards

The new National Core Art Standards were officially launched at 9 am today.  I think that there is a lot to like about this new set of standards.

According to the NCCAS, the revised standards are meant to “affirm the place of arts education in a balanced core curriculum, support the 21st-century needs of students and teachers, and help ensure that all students are college and career ready. The arts standards emphasize “big ideas,” philosophical foundations, enduring understandings/essential questions, and anchor/performance standards, all of which are intended to guide the curriculum development and instructional practices that leads to arts literacy for all students.”

I found this list of 10 things you should know about the new Art Standards  on the Art of Education.
