Indiana Standards for Fine Arts

Published on September 17th, 2017

Great news from the IDOE – the 2018-19 Visual Arts and Theater standards are now available. Standards can be found here:

Each committee met multiple times to go over the standards. They were available for public review in May and June. After reviewing the comments and making changes the final versions for these two areas are available.

There is still work to be done including some supplements to make your life a little easier as you implement the new standards. Please make sure you have these new standards as part of your 18-19 classrooms.

AEAI will unpack the standards at the convention 11/3 and 11/4 at Hamilton Southeastern High School. We hope to do something with theater standards in January.

Music Standards will be available for Round 2 of public review very soon (I’m hoping by Friday, Sept. 15) and the same for Dance. They will be available for month and will be found on the IDOE main Fine Arts page:
