I have seen national standards, but you can have the cart before the horse. Think about it!
The children who have a grounded art education will learn more about science and math than those who do not. They will learn about lines, color, spectrums, textures, and a wide range of other equally important concepts and practices they really need for math and science.
The children who have a grounded art education will learn more about judging the product not the person.
There are so many more advantages that make a child's education more complete because of their art education that begins in elementary school.
You may quote me!
Hope this helps!
