FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Michigan Arts Education Instructional Blueprint and Assessments to be Developed

The creation of a Model Arts Education Instruction and Assessment (MAEIA) program for Michigan has been announced with a partnership between the Michigan Assessment Consortium (MAC), Data Recognition Corporation (DRC), and the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). The partners, MAC and DRC, were selected by MDE to develop these valuable resources for Michigan's elementary and secondary schools in response to needs identified by the 2012 Michigan Youth Arts Survey. The Survey gathered data from Michigan's K-12 public schools on the key components of a comprehensive arts education; results from this survey were presented to the Michigan State Board of Education at its December 2012 meeting.

 VISUAL ARTS, as defined by the National Art Education Association, include the traditional fine arts such as drawing, painting, printmaking, photography and sculpture; media arts including film, graphic communications, animation and emerging technologies; architectural, environmental and industrial arts such as urban, interior, product and landscape design; folk arts; and works of art such as ceramics, fibers, jewelry, works in wood, paper, and other materials. (revised July 2012)
