The Facilities Guidelines for Fine Arts Programs are designed to support the vision and new standards the Maryland State Department of Education has set as a community for fine arts education. They will assist parents, teachers, school system staff, Boards of Education, architects, and other consultants in planning and designing school facilities for fine arts programs.
The Facilities Guidelines for Fine Arts Programs examines the planning process and design features and considerations for public school fine arts programs in Maryland. Planning concepts and trends are highlighted followed by planning guidelines for dance, music, theater, visual arts, general education, and performance spaces. General design considerations discussed include facility accessibility, acoustics, climate control and energy conservation, indoor air quality, community use of the school, security and safety, and telecommunications systems. Appendices contain the requirements for fine arts instruction programs, Maryland arts organizations, and the Maryland State Department of Education standards for telecommunication distribution systems.
