Program Development Update
In response to feedback from Albertans, Alberta Education has extended the timeline for response to the Draft K–12 Arts Education Curriculum Framework to January 31, 2010. The framework is available in English in the Fine Arts section and in French in the Beaux-arts section of the Alberta Education Web site. This framework provides the vision and direction for arts education programs of study. Feedback on the draft framework can be shared with Alberta Education through the Draft K–12 Arts Education Curriculum Framework Online Discussion Questions in English and in French.
