    PREFACE

    This curriculum guide is to be used as a primary resource in all Brevard County Public School art programs. It is intended to assist art educators with the implementation of the following state, local and professional requirements:

    Florida Sunshine State Standards Florida Curriculum Frameworks/Course Descriptions Florida Goal 3 Standards Professional Development Plans

    All of the Sunshine State Standards for art, and when appropriate, the Goal 3 standards have been met for each grade level. The curriculum is written to update previous local and state course descriptions to include the Sunshine State Standards. The standards provide minimum benchmarks, indicating what students should be able to know and do upon completion of each course. The course descriptions are intended to be open ended, allowing each art teacher to implement the standards in her/his own way. The suggested outcomes ( the student will be able to:) are not intended to represent the only possible outcomes but rather a model from which teachers can explore and implement additional outcomes that will meet individual student needs. Because the new curriculum formalizes a significant shift in student expectations, as required by the Department of Education, both new and experienced teachers are expected to use this resource in tailoring their existing programs to meet the new expectations for each course. As co-curricular courses, performance-oriented art classes have requirements that go beyond the regular school day. This is similar to requiring homework or project oriented classes such as Science Research, which requires the student to spend extra school hours. It is essential that students who take these classes be well informed about the requirements for participation during and after school hours. While attention to the development of strong performance skills is the mainstay of strong art programs, the Sunshine State Standards require more emphasis on creating art, historical and cultural connections, aesthetic and critical analysis, and applications to life., Students should be given the opportunity to learn more about art, how it works and how it applies to their life now and in the future. Students lives can be enriched by intellectual and emotional development that art courses provide. Additionally, the enhancement of critical thinking skills, the enjoyment of making art while working in cooperation with others, the opportunity for exposure to other cultures, and the opportunity to learn citizenship and community involvement are but a few of the benefits that participation in a comprehensive art program provides.

    VERIFICATION OF AUTHENTICITY

    In keeping with the highest national standards Brevard Countys Art

    Leadership team strongly suggests the following guidelines for County juried shows. Any work that makes use of photographs, published images, and/or other artists work must show substantial and significant development beyond duplication. This may be demonstrated through manipulation of formal qualities, design, and/or concept of the original work. If a student generates work from their own photographs or another artists photograph or illustration a photocopy should be attached to the back of the work. It is unethical, constitutes plagiarism, and often violates copyright law to simply copy an image (even in another medium) that was made by someone else. This verification is adapted from and reflects standards of the College Boards guide for studio art classes and Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.
