Utah State Board of Education – Utah Fine Arts Core Standards

All students should have the opportunity to experience the fine arts as part of a well-rounded curriculum and complete education. The study of drama, dance, music, and the visual arts helps students explore realities, relationships, and ideas that cannot be expressed simply in words or numbers. Study of the fine arts nurtures creativity, an essential skill for the 21st century. The fine arts serve the education of the whole child. The study of visual arts, dance, drama, and music, as outlined in the Utah State Core Curriculum, provides a venue for creativity to flourish. The fine arts provide a place for students to explore new ideas, for appropriate risk-taking, for creative problem solving, for working together with others, for developing aesthetic awareness, for exploring and expressing the world, and for cultural awareness and representation, in addition to the benefits of study in the discipline of fine arts. The study of fine arts is a critical element of a well-rounded education for every student.
