What curriculum design frameworks and resources should I use to develop a high school level art course?

I've always been in elementary schools teaching content in a predetermined way, and I only had one very frustrating class on curriculum development while getting my masters from a pretty well-regarded teaching program within the UC system in California. Now I've got the chance to teach at my old high school and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be hired regardless of my ability to design a course, but I know I am going to need to do all the work myself since it'd be a new program at the school and the admin are pretty hands off when it comes to course design. I am a professional artist with both a credential in elementary education and art, but I only have multiple subject experience, not single subject.
What should I know so I can at least do a decent job building a framework for this new class? I believe I'm going to need to design coursework for both 11th and 12th grade.
