Art is a subject that encourages children to think critically, solve problems creatively, make evaluations, work within groups, and appreciate a variety of different points of view. These skills are particularly suited to a discussion of Audrey Flack’s vanitas series. An original and ambitious artist, her motivational canvases are full of vivid colors, historical references, and popular imagery.
Discipline-Based Art Education or DBAE is a comprehensive approach to instruction and learning in art which incorporates four foundational disciplines in art — art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetics. Education in these disciplines contributes to the creation, understanding and appreciation of art, artists, artistic processes, and the roles and functions of art in cultures and societies.
