Other than professional development programs introduced in 1990s, art studies have created room for students to choose from a wide range of programs. Art education development led to the visual culture experienced today in art schools. Educators and stakeholders in art emphasized on the use of technology in visual art. For instance, National Standard, which was introduced in 1995 as per the California Teaching Standards has become a top producer in weld wire and several industrial wire products of high technology. This has made North America, through National Standards set standards for consistent and quality art works. This learning thus cultivates the learner, building several literacy skills and at the same time developing intuition, reasoning, creativity, and dexterity in a special manner. However, emphasis or development of visual culture has not disrupted art curriculum in K-12 stage. Painting, sculpture, art making and music have characterized the early stages of art education in primary schools.

Art museums are part of teaching resources used in 2000s to teach art to students. . American Art Education in 1980s through today 2012.
