Basic art education is the basic, common and first training process of plastic arts where creative personalities with the levels of being talented and experience, revealing the potential of individual sense, intuition, inventiveness, dream and improvisation, being able to use this potential within an aesthetic organization and order are expected to be created. The latest inclination in the field of education has been remarked as student needs at objectives, discipline structure at contents and scientific method at teaching. In common sense, there have appeared some new student-centered inclinations acknowledged by a great many educators and bearing significance at modern educational science in last decade. Integrity of practical and theoretical course should be supplied at studying the course of basic art education. It is necessary that the theoretical side of the course should not dominate the practical studies; it should be carried out as an integral part. Basic art education is empirical due to its objectives. More modern methods that students adapt "by conscious" and through which they improve the attitude of stimulation and awareness would increase the efficiency of the course.
