ABSTRACT

This study aims to measure the skills of classroom teacher candidates' in transforming their creativity into artistic design. Descriptive analysis technique, which is one of the qualitative research techniques, is used and document review method is applied in the study. The research consists of data obtained as a result of an observation conducted by the researcher during a total of 78 course hours throughout one term with the 4th year students of Classroom Teaching Faculty of Niğde Ömer Halis Demir University. As a result, it is observed that at the beginning of the study, students were biased on their skills and felt unsuccessful in art. As students focus more on teacher appointment exams, they have always wanted to pass exams without an effort and take grade in a very short span of time. It has been observed that students, in general, don't have any attempt to be creative.
