The article focuses on the move of Getty Education Institute for the Arts to promote a new form of arts education known as Discipline-Based Art Education (DBAE). It stated that artistic practice within discipline is integrated with the intellectual substance of the discipline, including its aesthetic principles. The said initiatives mark new emphasis for arts education in American schools, which has been limited to practical experience in such activities as painting, acting, singing, and playing instrument. Moreover, the development of national standards that go beyond mere practical experience and school service is an exciting development for everyone who cares about education.
