I've always believed in teaching using these standards promoted by the J.Paul Getty Institute as part of a concept called Discipline Based Art Education (DBAE) - this was drilled into me my my professors at Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska (CUNE) .

1. Art Production: Understanding and applying media, techniques, and processes

2. Aesthetics: Using knowledge of structures (elements) and functions(principles)

3. Personal Expression: Choosing and evaluating a range of subject matter, symbols, and ideas (content)

4. Art History: Understanding the visual arts in relation to history and cultures

5. Art Criticism: Reflecting upon and assessing the characteristics and merits of their work and the work of others (evaluation)

6. Integration: Making connections between visual arts and other disciplines
