Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts

The Blueprints for Teaching and Learning in the Arts: PreK-12 provide teachers with a path to follow for developing curriculum in their art form, and provide benchmarks for what children should know, understand, and be able to do in the arts at critical junctures in their intellectual, physical, and emotional development. In addition, the Blueprints provide school administrators with tools to appropriately supervise arts teachers and to recognize and share with parents the potential their children have for achievement in the arts.

Revised in 2015, the Blueprints now include new information for working with special student populations; updated bibliographies; and alignment with the Common Core. OASP’s website includes full PDFs for each art form: dance, music, theatre, visual art, and the moving image
