Considering general principles of fostering creativity in children and youngsters together with empirically proven knowledge of numerous experts and the tendency of modern teaching methods in the field of creativity, it becomes clear that the range of knowledge, skills and attitudes in art education provided by the Educational standards for the end of compulsory education in Serbia is incomplete and unsystematic. The current conception of Standards in the field of visual arts is completely pointless due to the omission of the aspect of creativity. The consequences of the issues established in the Current conception of standards in the field of visual arts are harmful not only for the development of children’s creativity, but also for the development of the entire personality. In this way the basic human, above all children’s right and need for creative expression and action is formally disabled. Also, performing of the key objectives in art education, especially teaching art is disabled. The key objectives are just formally represented in some issues within Standards without possibility of their systematical realization within the current educational practice.
