Visual Arts classes (K-6) in Iowa Public Schools will be instructed by a highly qualified licensed art educator.
All students deserve a comprehensive, balanced and sequential program of instruction in visual arts. The visual arts are core disciplines which make thinking visible and merit study as a means of effective communication, as historical components of civilization, and as providers of unique forms of knowledge to find self in their world through integration. Schools and school districts have the responsibility to hire highly qualified and certified arts teachers to develop and maintain programs that reflect a global and 21st century education.
Help this task force to guide lawmakers to mandate change in K-6 Visual Art licensing requirements!
