What does an exemplary arts program look like?

The Michigan Blueprint of a Quality Arts Education Program describes the gold standard for high quality arts education programming and instructional needs. Backed by Research and Recommendations in dance, theatre, music and visual arts, the Blueprint provides specific detail on the logistical needs of arts programming.

The Arts Education Program Review Tool allows you to identify your current status in relation to the Blueprint criteria, making it simple to identify action steps to strengthen your arts program.

  • The Program Review Tool (PRT) is a self-study tool districts and schools can use to analyze the status of their own arts education program.
  • Questions in the PRT relate to criteria in the Blueprint of a Quality Arts Education program.
  • Your PRT results will help foster meaningful conversations about arts education in your school and district.
Results can be used as part of the district and building school improvement process.
