Art Education 

On May 18, 2015, the Arizona State Board of Education, recognizing that the Arts provide students with the means to
think, feel and understand the world in ways unique and distinct from other academic disciplines, approved a new slate of Academic Standards in the Arts – standards which embrace the life-changing and life-affirming concept of Artistic Literacy: the ability of students to create Art, perform, present, and produce Art, respond to and critique Art, and connect Art to their lives and the world around them.

Here is Whiteriver, we have Music and Art programs at various schools to help support student creativity.  

The Arizona Academic Standards in the Arts are structured around four Artistic Processes designed to answer the question, “What do artists do?” The Artistic Processes are consistent across all Arts disciplines: Dance, Media Arts, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts. These contribute to Artistic Literacy for All.
