Abstract

The place and importance of art education is great within a planned training program. Considering the contribution of an individual's personality development, it can be better understood the necessity and importance of the quality. Targeted to be trained the individuals developed the visual perception with art education, self-expression, creative, exploratory, productive, environment-sensitive transducer and recognizing learning ,protecting the culture in which he lives and handing down the next generations, being respectful the world's cultural heritage and being constructive. By improving their confidence during the child's learning period, it contributes to her/his academic success. Art teaches how they could solve the problems by improving the imagination and creativity of children. If developed with together the ability to reflect the truth and the fact beginning to develop in his/her school years and the interest to art observed in little child , but then the art education takes no hesitation at all ages, the art is never interrupted. Wrong attitudes of families, other branch teachers, class masters and administrators cause to be detected as an education required only for talented students and just a leisure activity, a discharge area for the visual arts course. This situation leads to the idea of not being as important as the other subjects within the curriculum. This idea being common leads to be reacted normally the use of the study area of the other courses when the visual arts course is done. The artistic development in the child's development process is ignored and paid no attention. The curriculum of the art education and its dimensions such as teachers, student and media must be complete and the desired level. In case of the failure of one of these, it can be said that the goals will not be reached. The most important condition of being efficient and fitting the purpose of the art education is that the visual arts teacher who has been trained in this area should handle to this course. The classroom teachers enter to the visual arts course in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th classrooms of primary school. The courses for the training of the visual arts within the license training of the classroom teachers include the courses which are 2 credits of art education in the fourth semester and again 2 credits of visual arts teaching in the seventh semester. This period is not sufficient to have enough theoretical and practice-based and the experience and equipment for visual arts of classroom teacher. Because the visual arts course has a method rich and technical means and their use in teaching requires to do al lot of practice on this respect. In the field of application, if especially classroom teachers exhibit a negative and unstable attitude as the subject, tools, equipment, technique and method in education and training of the visual arts, this case causes not to materialize of the goals of course. All control and management staffs, teachers, parents and especially classrooms teachers should accept and adopt that this course is a teaching which has its own characteristics. Otherwise, it can lead to the idea that the picturing is a ability work for the classroom teachers. Furthermore, the picturing evokes the opinion that success in teaching is possible with the talent and expertise. Among the reasons this view, it is due to the idea of needed to make pictures under the photo-realistic of child or as an adult. This clearly means that the child extract from childness, and this is contrary to the nature of the child. It brings together not to understand to the child and being indifference to the interests and wishes. Although the child goes willingly and deliberately to the school, if he/she is forced to paint a certain type, it causes to return frustratedly and leaved the picturing .For this reason, the visual arts course; should keep the values of childness and must take advantage of. her/his development processes conditions. As a result, due to the need to be continuous of the visual arts course; this course must be conducted by the visual arts training teachers trained in this field instead of classroom teachers enter to the visual arts course in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th classrooms of primary school. Art education teached for its purpose for healthy and successful communities consisting of individuals completed personal training is mandatory.
