Family Guides for Fine Arts

The Ohio Alliance for Arts Education is pleased to provide you with the Fine Arts Standards Guides for Families. Our aim is to provide information and resources that assist you in helping your child succeed in school. Academic content standards for all subjects have been around for a few years in Ohio. The academic content standards guide teachers in knowing what students are expected to learn at any given grade level.  

The Fine Arts Standards Guide for Families series was written by Ohio arts educators participating in the Mentor Project with the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education, funded in part by the Ohio Arts Council. The arts educators saw a need to articulate the academic content standards for the arts in the same manner in which the Ohio Department of Education had communicated those addressing the other core subjects of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies in past years.

We recognize the expertise, time, and passion for the arts educators have given to this project and hope that you, too, will find this guide helpful to you as a family. Arts education is part of your child’s complete educational experience. The arts are essential to the basic education of all students. The Fine Arts Standards Guide for Families serves as a starting point from which you can help your child succeed in school. For more information about the complete set of standards, we encourage you to visit the Ohio Department of Education’s website at www.ode.state.oh.us and click on Standards and Instruction to view the standards in their entirety.
