Beatrise Garjāne, Anita Kairiša

Abstract


With today's expanding communication opportunities, new forms of visual art have emerged and a language of visual art has developed, which makes it necessary to examine the teaching methods for fostering art school students' understanding of art. This publication deals with the problem of art pedagogy – how to promote art school students‟ understanding of art in a contemporary way; accordingly, the aim of this article is to reveal pedagogical opportunities for promoting the understanding of art. The educators in Balvi Art School since 1996 have been involved in the development of the curriculum of the subject „Fundamentals of the Language of Art‟, in order to promote the understanding of art in the interaction between the history of culture, art history and the practical creative process. Studying the subject „Fundamentals of the Language of Art‟ is one of the prerequisites of the development of an understanding of art. The topicality of the research is reinforced by the fact that teachers should endeavor to compare and understand the teaching of art in order to select the most suitable didactic approach, methods and forms of work adapted to the nowadays pedagogical reality.
