This is not your question, but I started listing:
Structures for an Art 8 Curriculum.

Structures of Questions that promote creative thinking
Structures of Practice with art processes (rehearsal methods)
Structures of Artistic Thought
Structures of Creativity (how do highly creative people think)
Structures of Discovery Learning (assign experiments without divulging outcome)
Structures of Inspiration (what turns them on)
Structures of Art's Purposes (why do we need it)
Structures of Awareness (noticing & expressing both obvious and unseen)
Structures of Focus and Persistence
Structures of Ways to Form Visual Knowledge
Structures of Peer Learning in Art (learning by teaching)
Structures to Assess Art Learning and Growth
