Structure in the Arts
Understanding of the various structural components of the arts is critical to the development of other larger concepts in the arts. Structures that artists use include elements and
principles of each art form, tools, media, and subject matter that impact artistic products, and specific styles and genre that provide a context for creating works. It is the artist's
choice of these in the creative process that results in a distinctively expressive work. Students make choices about how to use structural organizers to create meaningful works of
their own. The more students understand, the greater their ability to produce, interpret, or critique artworks from other artists, cultures, and historical periods.

Humanity in the Arts
The arts reflect the beliefs, feelings, and ideals of those who create them. Experiencing the arts allows one to experience time, place, and/or personality. By experiencing the arts
of various cultures, students can actually gain insight into the beliefs, feelings, and ideas of those cultures. Students also have the opportunity to experience how the arts can
influence society through analysis of arts in their own lives and the arts of other cultures and historical periods. Studying the historical and cultural stylistic periods in the arts
offers students an opportunity to understand the world past and present, and to learn to appreciate their own cultural heritage. Looking at the interrelationships of multiple arts
disciplines across cultures and historical periods is the focus of humanities in the arts.

Purposes for Creating the Arts
The arts have played a major role throughout the history of humans. As the result of the power of the arts to communicate on a basic human level, they continue to serve a variety
of purposes in society. The arts are used for artistic expression to portray specific emotions or feelings, to tell stories in a narrative manner, to imitate nature, and to persuade
others. The arts bring meaning to ceremonies, rituals, celebrations, and commemorations. Additionally, they are used for recreation and to support recreational activities. Students
experience the arts in a variety of roles through their own creations and performances and through those of others. Through their activities and observations, students learn to
create arts and use them for a variety of purposes in society.

process is critical and relies on others for completion. Artists create works to express ideas, feelings, or beliefs. The visual arts capture a moment in time while the performing arts
(music, dance, drama/theatre) are performed for a live audience. The audience responds to the artistic expressions emotionally and intellectually based on the meaning of the
work. Each process enhances understanding, abilities, and appreciation of others. Students involved in these processes over time will gain a great appreciation for the arts, for
artists past and present, and for the value of artistic expression.
