AbstractThe development of Discipline-based Art Education (DBAE) has focused attention on curricular structure, especially as it relates to the concept of students' creative expression. Creative self-expression, the focus of many school art programs, is to encourage students' art production. Discipline-based art education in contrast strives to develop students' artistic expression. Achievement of artistic expression requires conceptually focused instruction of art content from four art disciplines, art history, art criticism, studio production, and aesthetics. A discipline-based lesson can be examined for the way artistic expression is fostered as a part of production. Specific examples drawn from one lesson are used to illustrate that artistic expression can be recognizable, sensitive to instruction, and subject to evaluation.
