Fine art is knowledge made visible.
- Gustave Courbet
The DESK Standards identify the essential skills and knowledge for each of the fine arts courses. They are the focus of instruction and learning in Davis School District fine arts classrooms.
Priority Standards clearly define the essential skills for each course. These skills are taught and practiced through the study of the course content identified in the Utah State Board of Education Fine Arts Standards.
1.5 units of credit (3 semesters) of Fine Arts courses are required for graduation. These credits must be earned in grades 9-12. Any Fine Arts course will fulfill these requirements.
Additionally, 8.5 units of Elective Credit are required for graduation and all Fine Arts courses can be used to fulfill these requirements.
