ASD art content standards, K – 12
Affirming the belief that knowledge of the visual arts is an indispensable part of a student's total education, the ASD K-12 visual art program is designed to encourage independent thinking, creativity, and development of an appreciation for humankind's artistic endeavors, prehistoric to the present.
