Maryland Fine Arts Standards

Print Email Add

The Maryland State Department of Education facilitated the drafting of the new Maryland Fine Arts Standards. MSDE facilitated statewide writing teams:

  • Made a comparison of current Maryland standards with the National Core Arts Standards
  • Revised current standards in the format of the National Core Arts Standards with indicators utilizing the current Maryland language when appropriate and expectations including 21st Century skill and Common Core language
  • Current drafts of the new Maryland Fine Arts Standards can be found for public review here

The writing teams also created supplemental and support documents including:

  • Unit and Lesson Seeds
  • Community and Global Project Examples
  • 21st Century Skill Assessments
  • Teacher Evaluation Guidelines for Site-Based Administrators

Please feel free to use the draft standards to guide any planning, with the understanding that the Standards are a draft and presentation to the Board of Education for approval has yet to be scheduled.
