Launched in 2014, the National Visual Arts Standards are part of the National Core Arts Standards. The Standards—written to be instructional, assessable, and aspirational—have endless possibilities to deliver curriculum in a variety of settings. Learn from three veteran K-12 art educators (who have all served on the NAEA Board of Directors) as they share their journeys and methods for effectively utilizing the Standards in facilitating challenging, engaging, developmentally-/age-appropriate units and lessons that provide deep investigation, critical thinking, problem solving, and student artist voice and choice. Gain new perspective as they share the Standards' impact on their work at the school, district, and state levels
