WEDEKIN, Luana Maribele  and  ZANELLA, Andrea Vieira. L.S. Vygotsky and Teaching Arts: "The aesthetic education" (1926) and the Art Schools in Russia 1917-1930. Pro-Posições [online]. 2016, vol.27, n.2, pp.155-176. ISSN 1980-6248.

This article discusses the relationship between "The Aesthetic Education" (1926) by Lev S. Vigotski and the context of restructuring education and teaching of the arts after the Russian Revolution of October 1917. This bibliographical study creates a dialogue between Vigotski and historians who have researched the art schools before and after the Revolution of 1917. The following issues guide the analysis: Were Vigotski's ideas on aesthetics consistent with established practices in these new institutions? Were these ideas related to policies for teaching art in the period? We concluded that "The Aesthetic Education" was forged on Vigotski´s practical experience in dialogue with the art and science of his time. The author remained independent of the official thinking, what keeps his work relevant and powerful to think about teaching arts today.

Keywords : Vigotski; aesthetic education; teaching arts; Russian art.
