The National Coalition for Core Arts Standards provides a extraordinary framework for our curriculum framework and reflects the highest level of academic research and competence ever.

They were created by Project Director, Phillip E. Shepherd (Manager, Academic Core Branch, Kentucky Department of Education) and a host of writing teams composed of the most highly qualified arts education professionals in the country.

Arts Areas: Dance, Visual & Media Arts, Music, and Theater

Artistic Processes: Creating, Performing/Presenting/Producing, Responding, and Connecting

We use these standards for all of World Upside Down’s video class curriculum.
