Discipline Based Art Education   The Discipline Based Art Education approach to the curriculum  combines experiences from four disciplines in the study of art: Art  History, Art Criticism, Aesthetics and Art Production. Discipline  Based Art Education merges the disciplines instead of teaching  concepts from each discipline separately. There would not be a  "Unit in Art History" or a "Unit in Aesthetics".   Art Production is the making of art, and the various components of  making art, such as use of tools, manipulation of media, form and  expression.   Art Criticism is the examination and discussion of style, formal  principals of design and elements of art.   Art History is not just "who made what when," but is the history of  objects and the history of people through art. Works of art provide  a unique documentation of cultural changes throughout history.  Studying historical works not only gives us insights into the past,  but can also provide valuable insights and information about the  present.   Aesthetics is the philosophy of art. Philosophical questions about  art seem to be unanswerable. What is art? What is good art? What  is beauty? It is important in the study of art that students engage  their brains, think about what they are doing, learning, and feeling  about their art and the art of others. In studying art through
