The Arts

The Arts in Washington state include dance, music, theatre, and visual arts. Quality instruction in the Arts is provided by specialists and classroom teachers and supported by partnerships with professional organizations and community programs in the Arts.

Learning Standards
The Arts learning standards describe what students should know and be able to do in the arts. The final and approved Arts Learning Standards are now available for use and implementation.

The OSPI-Developed Assessments are designed to help schools and districts determine whether students have met the Arts learning standards.

Annual High School Art Show
High school students from across the state participate in our artistic celebration each year, the Superintendent's High School Art Show.
