Abstract: 

The  main objective  of  this  research is  to study the effectiveness  of  arts  appreciation

session at secondary school, which is to see the factors relating to students that drive the

interest in implementing the appreciation session.  The research was done based on 165

respondents who are form three students from 3 schools in the District of Tumpat.  From

the literature  review  being done,  the  researcher  sees  the  main  need  of  the arts

appreciation session being implemented at school is  to train students  to think  and

communicate  through the  language of  arts.    At the same  time,  it  encourages  the

sensitiveness of student’s senses in having the attitude of accepting and rejecting as well

as  having practical taste on an object of  art or  other  matters  in their  daily  life.    In

general,  students  are  creative,  expressive  and active.    Pendidikan Seni Visual (Visual

Arts  Study)  plays  a  role in developing these  attitudes  through visual perception,

imagination and thinking.  Activities of thinking, exploring and designing in the various

genres of visual arts including the art appreciation session will enable students to state

their  ideas  and self-expression.    The  experience  is  important  as  it  helps  to build self-

esteem,  to evaluate  and to identify  the students’  own preferences.    As  a whole,  the

research uses  the quantitative  approach to  measure  the  level  of  achievement and

effectiveness  of  learning through appreciation session.    The  findings  are  then used to

construct a generalization on the effectiveness of the appreciation session being studied,

and as a foundation for further data.   The qualitative approach is used to gather further

detailed information.  This approach is used to gather data from experiences, opinions

and views of the respondents involved in the research, as well as data from the second

source.  It is also a justification in nature or a natural description and emphasizing the

perspective of the study.  The approach is also used with the intention to strengthen the

findings from analysis compared to the qualitative approach which uses the survey and

observation method.
