This web site is designed as a compendium of professional knowledge and practices for the implementation of Minnesota arts standards. Since 1993, the Perpich Center for Arts Education has been committed to the development of Minnesota’s arts standards as liaison to the Minnesota Department of Education and as the principal convener of standards writers, the Minnesota arts educators and educational stakeholders committed to the vision of quality arts education for all Minnesota students, in all the arts. This website is a current compilation of best practices developed by and for Minnesota arts educators working to implement the 2008 Minnesota Academic Standards in the Arts.
