This Handbook provides a practical, straightforward guide to the theory and practice of discipline-based art education. This comprehensive approach to art education has transformed the way students create and understand art; it also offers opportunities for relating art to other subjects as well as to the personal interests and abilities of young learners. This completely revised edition explains how DBAE draws content from the disciplines of art-making, art criticism, art history and aesthetics, and shows how the practice of DBAE in schools over the past several years has influenced how art is taught today.
