historia sztuki; teoria sztuki; edukacja artystyczna

The role of the theoretical subject of history of art in modern artistic education was reduced
and became an element of the general humanistic knowledge being grasped during the process of
studying. Lectures should play the role of stabilizing and organising this knowledge as the basis
of development for the more advanced and complex considerations regarding art and its wide
space of occurance at the 2nd level studies as well as the seminars. Exercises should align students’
intelectual competences, and equip them with the terminlogy of the discipline considered which
they naturally are not acquainted with.
Presented cogitations and proposed methods are a fruit of my longlasting experiences as the
subject lecturer and some didactic experiments. Laborious intelectual work and a bit formalized
way of conducting classes, that contrasts with casual atmosphere of the artistic classroom. Result
with the effects that can only be acknowledged form further time perspective by the young artist.
Despite some dejections and atempts radical subject reductions it is there for worth not to give up
on it as it is stipulated by the Latin, maxim ars sine scientia nihil est.
