My Dog's Name is Snoopy: Personal Symbolism and Joan Miro--A Model for Planning Learning Situations in Aesthetics, Art Criticism, Art History and Art Production.
The four content areas of discipline based art education (aesthetics, art criticism, art history, and art production) should be addressed in every art education unit planned and taught to students. All four content areas are addressed in the process of formal art criticism therefore every unit/lesson that utilizes a formal art criticism also serves discipline based art education (DBAE). The five steps in formal art criticism and their corresponding DBAE components are: (1) Describing--Art Criticism; (2) Analyzing--Art Criticism and Aesthetics; (3) Interpreting--Art Criticism and Aesthetics; (4) Funding--Art Criticism and Art History; and (5) Disclosing--Art Criticism and Art Production. Sample lesson plans that model for planning/learning situations that incorporate DBAE content are included. These lesson plans should be modified to suit individual needs before being taught and later should be remodified depending on students needs each time the lessons are taught. Working in art involves evaluation and change because it is part of what knowledge and creativity are all about. (KM)
