Abstract: This paper highlights the role of an art teacher in shaping the overall learning process and potential in supporting not only students’ artistic skills, but also skills to thrive in a contemporary world. The aim of this study is to develop and implement strategies that support students’ key competences in basic school visual art classes and to provide opportunities for students to be engaged with visual art in a more meaningful way. A preliminary questionnaire with 77 of Estonian basic school second level art teachers revealed that teachers support key competences rather implicitly and view these as a natural part of lessons that do not need extra planning. Basing on the action research cycle conducted with two 5th grade classes, we argue that explicit key competence support provides a more meaningful interaction between the teacher and students, and that planning plays a vital role in materialising key competences in the teaching.
