Core Arts Standards



NAfME, as a part of the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards, has re-imagined the 1994 National Standards. Released June 4, 2014, these new Core Arts Standards can be found at in a searchable, web-based format that allows users to look across all art forms. 

NAfME provides critical information on the structure of the standards, video instruction, explanation on the context of Artistic Processes (with process components), descriptions of the Cornerstone Assessments (MCAs) for the Performing aspect of the Standards, and how to utilize the new Core Music Standards with an eye to student assessment.  Access that information here.
