After a period development and consultation (2009-2014) ACARA the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority developed the Australian Curriculum: The Arts (http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/TheArts/Rationale-Aims) as part of Phase 2 development.
The Arts in Western Australian Curriculum
In February 2014 the Schools Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) announced that Western Australian Schools would “adopt and adapt” the Australian Curriculum: The Arts for Western Australian schools. Further development work will take place during 2015.
Check out the ACARA Arts Curriculum site.
There are excellent video clips introducing the curriculum and each of the five arts subjects.
Information on the Arts in Western Australian schools will be published on the School Curriculum and Standards Authority web site
