The purpose of this syllabus is to establish minimum basic concepts and develop proficient performance standards as articulated in the voluntary National Core Arts Standards which have been designed to encourage excellence through artistic literacy. These standards grow from four specific artistic processes and encompass the skills, knowledge and abilities articulated the Visual and Performing Arts Content Standards for California Public Schools. The National Core Arts Standards also acknowledge the value of assessment to evaluate curriculum, instruction, student achievement, and teacher effectiveness.
