Abstract

Art appreciation is a basis of learning to better understand and analyse art. It can also be referred to as appreciating, perceiving, thinking, responding and experiencing arts. In contrast, art appreciation can be used universally if there is an artwork engaged, commonly in museum, art galleries and even in art education. It can be completely subjective, depending on the personal interest and preferences of an individual or it can be achieved on several grounds. In Malaysian primary school, it is known as Visual Art Education and has its roots in drawing, patterns & designs, shape & build and traditional craft. In each fundamental, students are ought to perform art appreciation that allows them to appreciate their own work and their peers in terms of visual arts language, art history and culture as one of the standards in the curriculum. Thus, this paper presents a conceptual framework focused to understand factors and the reality behind ineffective art appreciation in primary school level. The sole objective of this paper was to investigate the implementation of art appreciation in primary school in context to the standard curriculum. In doing so, quantitative method was applied. The author intends to assert that the art appreciation have a critical place in Visual Art Education and indeed in children development itself.
