- Examine all relevant Fine Arts Standards
- Create and/or recommend statewide recommended Fine Arts Standards in Visual Arts, General Music, Instrumental Music, Vocal Music, Theater, Dance, and Media Arts.
- Write recommendations about implementation of the standards through
- Professional learning
- Materials and resources
- Offer final recommendations to the State Board of Education
