In contemporary painting, the expressive spectrum of the artist is very wide, beginning with the selection of techniques. I selected the technique of weaving for the author's opus. Weaving is a craft that requires a high level of hand skills, accuracy and perseverance, which is in contrast to the technological age in which we live, where the need for knowledge hand skills is no longer essential. In addition to weaving, my work is also characterized by texture, which arises as a result of weaving and subsequent color interventions into the paint. Despite the fact that the weaving activity is craft based, it is also presented in the artistic field. The very beginnings of weaving in painting date back to the Middle Age with the production of tapestries. In later periods, the use of textiles, as well as the very weaving of painting, has spread widely. Art pedagogues could take advantage of this more, given the fact that modern art does not have a limit on the range of fine arts and techniques. I took the weaving into my teaching of fine arts, which is not classical painting.
The research was carried out on three levels. In the first artistic-practical part I have explored the expressive ability of weaving. In the second, theoretical part, I studied the various uses of textiles and weaving in painting, and I sought parallels with works by renowned authors. In the third part, which includes qualitative research, I introduced the technique of weaving into fine arts teaching in the 6th grade of elementary school. With a descriptive method of pedagogical research, I analyzed pupils' opinions on the given art technique.
