In recent years, education in European countries is an important subject of interest. The education system is treated as a preparation stage for children’s role in an increasingly uncertain world. Additionally, there is a need to encourage young people to develop a wide range of abilities and interests to recognize and cultivate their potential and creativity. These developments raise a number of challenges for art education. According to the European Framework for Lifelong Learning (European Parliament, 18/12/2006), the cultivation of critical thinking and creativity are essential skills which are required to create integrated and active citizens, to promote social inclusion and to achieve employability. Arts education can be essential in achieving these goals.
