The purpose of this library research is to explain the need to teaching art appreciation since art teachers in Indonesia, especially at elementary schools, have not paid much attention to this activity by establishing a relationship between the urgency of art appreciation and the current pedagogical practice in Indonesia. The researcher then draws on a set of real cases in countries or regions where students are taught to appreciate art. It was found that art appreciation has been a core strategy of teaching art at elementary level for decades that produces a lot of success in places where it is systematically implemented, proven by significant improvement on students’ soft skills such as language acquisition and communication skill, which are vital for later stage of students’ life. Finally, the researcher concludes by giving a number of notes about what teachers, schools, and government can do more regarding art appreciation to improve the art learning, leading to students getting the most out of the art class.
