Arts Appreciation. Arts Appreciation exposes students to a broad variety of cultural experiences, arts disciplines and artists and increases their appreciation for the art form.

Content outline or teacher preparatory materials to supplement the performance or exhibition are required
Arts Integration. Arts Integration provides interdisciplinary residencies that authentically connect arts and non-arts curriculum standards. National Core Arts Standards and/or Tennessee Academic Standards for Fine Arts are used. Instruction is experiential and hands-on, with an emphasis on exploring a non-arts concept through the teaching of artistic skills, techniques, vocabulary, and/or social and historical context. Assessment of the student learning process for both arts and non-arts subjects occurs. Lesson plan sample mas be requested a sneeded.
Arts Curriculum. Arts Curriculum deepens student understanding and participation in a specific art form through lesson(s) based on National Core Arts Standards and/or Tennessee Academic Standards for Fine Arts.
