Abstract

Museum education is an important part of art education. When art education students

benefit from museums, their aesthetic perceptions, creative thinking skills, questioning

skills, critical perspectives and tastes are developed. Many sample studies in today’s

art education system emphasize the importance of museum and school cooperation.

Museums provide permanence for students in the process of encountering real objects

that are not included in the classroom environment. It is especially important

for art students to examine and see many different artists and works on the spot in

today’s world surrounded by visuals. The aim of this study is to examine the opinions

of students who receive arts education about museum education activities.

In this context, it has been studied in depth with 10 students studying at Istanbul

Gedik University Visual Communication Design department. In the findings obtained,

it was observed that museum education activities gave art education students

positive skills such as critical perspective, questioning skills, generating new

ideas, forming their own meanings and establishing relationality.
