3.4.09

2008 Minnesota Academic Standards in the Arts

The Minnesota Academic Standards in the Arts set the expectations for achievement in
the arts for K-12 students in Minnesota. The standards are organized by grade band (K-3,
4-5, 6-8, 9-12) into four strands that foster the development of students’ artistic literacy.
The strands are as follows:
1. Artistic Foundations
2. Artistic Process: Create or Make
3. Artistic Process: Perform or Present, and
4. Artistic Process: Respond or Critique.

Each strand has one or more standards that can be implemented in the arts areas of dance,
media arts, music, theater and/or visual arts. The benchmarks for the standards in each
arts area are designated by a 5-digit code. In reading the coding, please note that for code
0.3.1.5.2, the 0 refers to refers to the 0-3 (K-3) grade band, the 3 refers to the Artistic
Process: Perform or Present strand, the 1 refers to the first (and only) standard for that
strand, the 5 refers to the fifth arts area (visual arts), and the 2 refers to the second
benchmark for that standard.

Students are expected to master the standards in the selected arts area(s) by the end of the
last grade level in the band. For example, students are expected to master grade 6-8
standards by the end of eighth grade.

Several state statutes pertain to the new arts standards. In Minnesota, public elementary
and middle schools must offer at least three and require at least two of the following four
arts areas: dance, music, theater and visual arts. Public high schools must offer at least
three and require at least one of the following five arts areas: dance, media arts, music,
theater or visual arts. (Minnesota Statute 120B.021, subd.1)

Districts may use state or locally developed arts standards (MS 120B.021, subd. 1). State
graduation requirements call for students to earn one credit in the arts (MS 120B.024). A
career and technical education course may fulfill a general science, mathematics or arts
credit in addition to the specified science, mathematics or arts credits under paragraph
(a), clause (2), (3) or (5) of Minnesota Statute 120B.024. (See next page for complete text
of Minnesota Statute 120B.024).
2008 Minnesota Statutes
