Welcome to the home page for fine arts information and support!

For more information specific to your role in Oklahoma arts, select the appropriate tab on the right. 

Oklahoma Academic Standards for Fine Arts 

The new Oklahoma Academic Standards for Fine Arts (OAS-Fine Arts) were adopted in May of 2020. 

Oklahoma Fine Arts Curriculum Frameworks 

The Fine Arts Curriculum Framework is a hub of resources developed to help dance, drama/theatre, music, and visual art teachers translate standards into classroom practice. They do not represent a directive to teachers, schools, or districts for classroom instruction.

Oklahoma Fine Arts Curriculum Framework

The frameworks include:

  • Overview of the Creative Processes in every Discipline
  • Objective Analysis with Student & Teacher Actions, Key Understandings, and Teacher Insights
  • Resources and Lesson Ideas for each Objective
  • Student Proficiency Levels & Instructional Guidance
  • Formative and Summative Assessment Ideas
  • Universal Design for Learning and the Arts 

Oklahoma Family Guides for Elementary Music and Visual Arts

NEW family guides are now available for PK-6 music and visual arts classes. These handy, printable flyers include helpful information aligned to the Oklahoma Academic Standards (what students know and should be able to do in each grade and course) and guidance on how to support student learning at home. 

Holocaust Education - Visual Arts 

In collaboration with other agencies, the Oklahoma State Department of Education has created this page dedicated to the teaching of the Holocaust. Teaching the Holocaust is required in the social studies standards, and may be integrated into English language arts or visual arts.

Oklahoma Public Speaking Competencies

New draft competencies are available for public speaking courses. Public speaking is a different course/subject area than competitive speech and acting (which follows the Oklahoma Academic Standards in Drama/Theatre). Public comment will be open throughout the 2022-23 school year.
