Education, and therefore learning, is one of the most important variables that enable the individual to know himself, to realize himself, and of course, to be happy. For this purpose, all societies, whether developed or developing, invest in education. One of the types of education is art and art education. Art puts aside the differences, conflicts and oppressions between people and allows them to work on their coexistence skills. In this sense, it can be said that art provides the formation of a universal tool, that is, a common visual language, shared by the whole society in the national sense and the whole world in the universal sense, without discriminating against colour, language, religion or race. Whether people's interest in art is by producing, watching, listening, reading, the situation not only activates emotions and sensitivity in the individual, but also keeps the mental processes of the individual, who are a whole with cognitive and affective aspects, alive. The concept of art education, on the other hand, in a broader sense, defines creative artistic education in and out of school, including all fields and forms of fine arts, and in a narrow sense, the relevant courses in the school. Visual arts education, on the other hand, is a comprehensive educational concept that includes students' knowledge, daily life and information learned in other courses, and aims to establish logical connections between all these knowledges. The aim is to recognize the innate powers of the child at a very young age and to develop them artistically. The aim of this research is to determine the students' views on the realization of sketches using different techniques in the Visual Arts course in the context of Art Education. For this purpose, sketch studies were carried out using four different techniques, and student opinions on semi-structured interview questions at the end of each application, drawings they made in sketchbooks and student diaries were examined and necessary findings were compiled. The findings revealed that the techniques of "collage, print, poster and tale recital with music" used while performing the sketch studies positively affected the students' "motivation, interest, creativity, imagination, enjoyment of the activity and feeling comfortable" in the Visual Arts lesson.
