Kentucky Department of Education
Fine Arts Core Curriculum

This page includes only the information KDE has included in the core curriculum. It is not a definitive source for the fine arts. Many fine artists have not been included but I have tried to organize the fine arts as set forth by the KDE, in a manner that hopefully makes teachers' and students' learning processes easier. This page is a large undertaking, but I believe, a worthwhile one. It is a work in progress at this time - there is SO much more to be added. Please email me if you have any suggestions or concerns. Let me know how this can be developed to best help you. Thanks!
