Demystifying the Standards for the Arts


We Are Common Core & We Always Have Been !

 

Artists abhor the term Common. We seek to be innovative, ground breaking, and inventive. We create, exasperate, and astound. We push the envelope, jump out of the proverbial box, and hail unorthodox as our main mantra. However, the truth is…Common Core is more common than you think, at least for us artists. This is what we do, and what we do best. We have been doing it all along. The idea of synthesizing, applying, and creating are in our nature, our backbone, and our structure. We are engaged in a broad spectrum of activities and we relate, practice, demonstrate, and create. This is what we do! So, when you think about it…we are Common Core…and we always have been.
