Work on the Oregon Visual Arts Standards is Under Way

Five teams of Oregonians are currently at work writing Oregon Core Arts Learning Standards in dance, media arts, music, theatre visual arts. The teams are led and comprised of arts discipline specialists in each of the five fields. Facilitation of the five teams is under the leadership of the Oregon Alliance for Arts Education (OAAE). These standards will be available in draft form this coming fall and up for public review.  Once the public review input is received, the teams will adjust the draft standards as they feel is needed. Then, with a final form for each set of standards, OAAE will take appropriate next steps to work for statewide acceptance of the standards. The springboard for the writing of the Oregon arts standards has been and is the new set of national Core Arts Standards.   Your visual arts writing team is led by Katie Gillard and the team is composed of OAEA members.
