Visual Arts Standards were developed and passed by the Nebraska Department of Education in 2014.

Omaha Public Schools utilizes those standards to develop consistent and quality art curriculum across the district. 

The overall concept for Nebraska K-12 Visual Arts Education is that:

Students will develop and apply ideas, knowledge, and skills to createpresent, respond to, and connect art with the human experience. 

In every elementary art lesson, the learning objectives and assessments are standards-based.
