The Art education program in the Central Bucks School District is a Discipline-Based Art Education (DBAE) program, aligned with both State and National Standards. Discipline-Based Art Education, as espoused by national leaders in the field of Art Education, involves the development of skills and knowledge in four basic disciplines in Art. Those disciplines are: Aesthetics and Art Philosophy; Art Production; Art History; Art Criticism. These four disciplines are found in all Courses of Study in Art as they provide the unifying structure of the Central Bucks Art program, from Kindergarten through High School. Additionally, it should be noted that the content in every course of study is sequential in nature. The knowledge and skills that provide the content under each discipline are meant to build upon the knowledge and skills that were taught and mastered in previous art courses.
