Respond to this message.

I'm not formally trained as an art teacher but have to address the National
Standards for the Arts and those for New York State as part of a project
I'm working on. In a nutshell, can someone from the list explain to me in
plain English the difference between art criticism and aesthetics, with an
brief example of how each, or the relationship between them, might be
played out in a typical art K-12 lesson?

Many thanks for answering and helping me to understand this basic question.
