The article presents the results of an empirical study, whose purpose was to identify preferences for art motifs among fourth-grade primary school students in Slovenia and Croatia. From the viewpoint of the total sample (n=1,467), the study results have shown statistically significant gender-related differences in four out of five cases. No differences were observed with regard to social stratum. With regard to individual countries, statistically significant differences were noted in three out of the five cases. It was expected that there would be no differences in preferences for art motifs between Slovenian and Croatian students.

Theoretical and search considerations, and tyflopedagogic practice above all, make us see the culture of people with visual disabilities as an important way of educational and rehabilitation activities implemented in the spirit of inclusion, i.e. social inclusion in important communication links whose one of the areas is culture.
Based on a descriptive and critical analysis of small literature on the subject, as well as participant observation and personal experience of the author, the subject of the specific nature of the reception of works of culture by people with visual disabilities and the conditions and possibilities of nonvisual ways of sharing them have been considered.
Tactile and auditory ways of providing visual arts: Braille system, typhlography and audio description have been presented as corresponding to the specificity of cognitive processes of visually impaired people. The importance of the Internet for participation in the culture of visually impaired people has been marked, recalling selected exemplifications.
Based on the considerations undertaken, the postulates of practical and research actions have been drawn up in the field of interdisciplinary issues of inclusive participation in the culture of people with visual disabilities.

In Slovenian schools pupils have few opportunities to observe, understand and enjoy works of art. Contemporary art education in Slovenia should aim to combine the development of productive and receptive artistic abilities. This would make more comprehensive artistic development of pupils possible. In this study we monitored the development of the art-appreciation abilities of 10 – 11-year old pupils in primary schools in northeastern Slovenia. Th e results show that the level of art-appreciation abilities is somewhat average, however, girls showed higher developed art-appreciation abilities than boys. Based on the results we can conclude that the development of art appreciation abilities in our art-education program is given too little attention.
