Getting to Know the New National Arts Standards Workshop, Monday, February 2, 9:30 – 11:30am 
This past summer the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards released its first draft of core art standards. The new standards are intended to be an updated, unified framework for those 
delivering arts education that includes grade-by-grade benchmarks across the art forms in creating, performing, responding and connecting. The workshop will include: 
• Philosophy behind the new arts standards 
• Introduction to understanding the new art standards 
• How you can make the strongest connections to the art standards. 
Exploring Intersections Between the Common Core State Standards and the Arts, Wednesday, February 11, 9:30 – 11:30am 
This workshop is designed for applicants who are interested in deepening their understanding of how to bridge core curriculum subjects to the arts. This workshop will explore the needs of the 
district and how to take a backwards-design approach to developing an arts integration program. The workshop will include: 
• Uncovering how you can support learning in curriculum subjects and the arts 
• How to assess students’ understanding and comprehension during an arts integration program 
• Understanding identified areas of need and interest when designing new programs. 
If you have any questions or would like to RSVP for any of the sessions above please do not hesitate to contact me. 
Join us in bringing the joy back to learning!
