Fine Arts Standards

Fine Arts Standards Revisions Update

The writing and advisory groups for fine arts met this fall to review and revise the proposed 2019 Ohio’s Learning Standards for Fine Arts in respect to the five disciplines (visual arts, dance, drama/theatre, music, media arts). The Ohio Department of Education would like to sincerely thank all those involved in this process for their time and efforts. The Office of Learning and Instructional Strategies currently is working to complete the crosswalk between the 2012 and 2019 standards based on input from the writing group. The goal is to provide an updated version of the 2019 fine arts standards to both the writing and advisory groups in early 2020. Communication to the education community will follow. We look forward to producing quality standards that reflect the voices of Ohio fine arts educators.
