The North American Division Elementary Fine Arts Standards is to be used as a resource tool for organizing and developing a successful program for visual arts. Note that since these art programs are produced by secular publishers, some lessons may contain information that is contrary to the Adventist Worldview. Teachers must use discretion to edit the information so that it is appropriate for use.
