it came from? I need it to bore
other people and lull them into thinking we are all cut from the same mold.
source anyone? (take a guess

" Discipline-Based Art Education (DBAE) is a comprehensive art education
program, an approach to teaching art that is effective in stimulating
children's creative and intellectual growth in all subject areas. It is
based on the belief that art from kindergarten through grade 12 should be
taught with the same commitment and rigor as other basic school subjects by
combining skills, knowledge and understanding of art. As such, the
disciplines of art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetics
form the core of DBAE"................................
