Abstract | Full Text

Education, one of the fundamental elements for both individual and communal progress, is a process of developing ideas and behaviours, systematized by man. Education, wherein different methods have been used in line with the objectives, based on needs, has been recently programmed according to the field’s characteristics. Art education, which may be described as a process in which desired artistic behaviours have been built, has become a specific field wherein different methods and techniques have been employed.Art education has developed to meet the needs, experienced due to changing conditions. Today, art courses which started with pre school education aim at contributing to the development of society in all levels of education including the non-formal education as well. To be able to appreciate a high quality work of art is a sign of being a part of modern culture. Art education educates man in all aspects. Art education enables individuals to perceive existence, to think analytically, to question, and to be free from the limitations of traditional norms to develop new behaviours and structures so as to contribute to the development of society as art is definitely one of the significant components of science and technology
