We had a "distinguished " visitor from the US here some years ago
talking about Discipline Based Art Education and you know what i
thought. ????
I got it completely wrong and connected discipline with punishment
and correction. I guess I did not listen to a word he said. I
still cannot see DBAE or whatever without having a secret chuckle at
my original thought and then I am too embarrased to look at it any further
I wish it could be called something else.
I always have images of a teacher with 30 kids all sitting up ,
pencils poised and on the count of 3, draw lines a to b, b to c,
c to a. It reminds me of the old pastel books when i was at
Primary school and the teacher showed us how to draw "A APPLE".
However, I think though i am a secret DBAE person underneath it all.
