Please note: Only the first 3,000 to register may attend. The link to register is at the bottom of this page.

The National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS) will launch the 2014 National Core Arts Standards in a streaming webinar on Wednesday, June 4, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. EDT. The event will feature interviews with a broad spectrum of arts education providers, including certified educators, teaching artists, administrators, national/state policy makers, and arts education advocates.

The new standards for dance, media arts, music, theatre, and visual arts were created by seventy writers representing NCCAS’s arts education member organizations. More than 6,000 educators, teaching artists, parents, students and state and local focus groups offered input in four national reviews that helped shaped the final standards.

The PreK-12 grade-by-grade standards are intended to guide educators seeking to provide quality arts education for America’s students, define artistic literacy, and support 21st century skills and college and career readiness. The arts standards will be housed in the NCCAS website at www.nationalartsstandards.org. A key feature of the interactive website is the option for teachers and other users to create customized standards handbooks that match their curriculum and students’ learning needs.

All are welcome to join the National Core Arts Standards webinar launch. To participate, register at http://tinyurl.com/lrsajg9. Sign up will be limited to the first 3,000 registrants. Highlights of the webinar will be available on the website at a later date.

  1. Hello,

    Setting “standards” and regulating the arts and creativity is a totally absurd and ridiculus concept.

    What’s next … commissars of music, art literature and invention ? .. how about a department of creativity with many thousands of regulations added on years go by?

    Would all the great creators and innovators of the past fit in to “CORE” concepts devids by beaurocrats ? Human creativity happens when it happens … like miracles … for example Mozart and Beethoven … if you regulate that sort of human creativity you stifle and suffocate it.

    By definition creative new things are “out of the box” ..

    Creators are diametriaclly opposite to regulators.. We color outsidse the lines at times…. break rules and definitions etc… Sincerely, Leonarrd Schneider President of United Software and Design Inc http://www.tire-dealer-software.com/
