The article reveals an object-spatial approach to the process of fine arts studying by children of different ages. The authors justify the pedagogical directions of children’s education, which have been developed and scientifically substantiated in the works of the outstanding psychologist, educator and art historian A.V. Bakushinsky (1883-1939). The authors distinguish the basic directions of the mastery of object-spatial types of activities by students of different ages. It is shown how the ideas of child’s art education, generated in the beginning of the 20th century, are refracted in modern children’s education.

Keywords: art education, pedagogics of art, space and environment, spatial perception, interaction of arts, integrated training, child’s worldview
