Learning in and through Art provides a practical, straightforward guide to the theory and practice of discipline-based art education. This comprehensive

In this completely revised edition, the author explains how DBAE draws content from the disciplines of art-making, art criticism, art history, and aesthetics. In addition, he shows how the practice of DBAE in schools over the past several
