Abstract: This research proposes to study concepts and practices aimed at school that have to support arts education as part of the key competence cultural awareness and expression. When we talk about this, we refer to the creative expression of ideas, experiences and emotions through a wide range of artistic means, among which we can mention music, performing arts, literature, visual arts, theatre, oratory, dance, painting, crafts, design and so on. The target group consists of parents of students in secondary education in many schools across the country. Research findings underline the need and importance of arts education in school in vision of parents. The artistic activities which take place in the school belong both in formal education when artistic elements are integrated within hours of the framework plan and the non-formal education, which takes place in the context of various thematic activities linked to historical events, cultural, local or in context of activities during the Week Otherwise program. Conceptions parents about art include references to creativity, personal development, imagination, discovery and development of talent child development expression and individual identity, variety of artistic experiences and means of expression, social skills, group work and interest in participating in cultural activities. In the view of parents, conceptualization of art being done through individual development of their children, relates to research and discovery of himself, awareness of behaviours existing (not necessarily artistic), accepting the impact that these have on becoming personal future of individuals and action to create patterns of behaviour and constructive thinking.
