Visual arts make an integral part of educational influences aiming to stimulate the
child’s overall development and upbringing. The educational dimension of visual
arts was recognized very early and has become an integral part of various forms of
institutional education. The activities of artistic expression and creation have become
essential in the educational practice of kindergartens from the very beginnings of
institutional early and preschool education. Different views on the child’s artistic
development influenced educational programs and curricula of early and preschool
education. Following the foreign pedagogical experiences as well as local educational
practice, methodological approaches to visual arts activities in kindergarten have
changed and improved over time. Copying and imitating the way of expression of
visual arts educators, have been replaced by the child’s spontaneous and innovative
artistic expression and creation.
