Genç, Mehmet Ali
Educational Research and Reviews, v11 n13 p1272-1278 Jul 2016
After the Enderun College which successively provided gifted education during the Ottoman period, special education for the gifted in Turkey was interrupted. The discussion of talent education started after 1993 and an education model convenient to the conditions in Turkey was developed following the steps of how it is done in other parts of the world In order to apply this education model, institutions called "the Center of Science and Art" were opened. During the early educational stages of those institutions, the aim was to give "Discipline Based Art Education" while at the later stage, it provided art education for the production of art works. This qualitative study is a response to the insufficient publications of visual arts in the education of the gifted students in Turkey; in the form of "Action Research". In the study, the education of gifted students in visual arts in Turkey was analyzed and an art education at the level of conformity was presented through observation.
