Blueprints for teaching and learning in the arts
The Blueprints for Teaching and Learning in the Arts provide teachers with a path to follow for developing curriculum in all arts disciplines, and provide benchmarks for what children should know, understand, and be able to do in dance, music, theater, and visual arts at critical junctures in their intellectual, physical, and emotional development. In addition, the Blueprints provide school administrators with tools to appropriately supervise arts teachers and to recognize and share with parents the potential their children have for achievement in the arts.
To order physical copies of Blueprints:
• Schools can order Blueprints on FAMIS using school funding.
• For external partners, please email ArtsAndSpecialProjects@schools.nyc.gov to inquire about ordering Blueprints.
