"'A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.'

~Maya Angelou (1928–2014), American author, poet, singer, Civil Rights advocate, and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom

The California Arts Standards provide guidance toward a common goal: for all California students to fully participate in a rich and well-rounded arts education. An arts education helps children and youth make sense of the world, communicate their unique ideas across boundaries, and discover who they are as individuals and as members of various groups. Students who experience a quality arts education, one that seeks to honor the aesthetic and enduring over the efficient, have an opportunity to engage in complex and nuanced thinking around meaningful work.

Because a sequential arts education, as core subject matter, is essential for every California student from the earliest years through high school graduation and beyond. California Education Code requires arts courses of study to be offered to all California students."
