Abstract: The educational goal of teaching fine arts is to adopt visual literacy and visual expressiveness. Learning by means of information and communication technologies (ICT) involves the use of digital devices for the effective and creative extension of knowledge. The production of electronic educational materials is increasing daily, and thanks to the Internet, it is available on almost all ICT devices. In this paper virtual museums are presented as educational contents of ICT in the teaching of fine arts, as well as their method of application in teaching. The contents presented by virtual museums provide an interactive and non- interactive method of learning and exploration. The interactive educational content of virtual museums is often in the form of educational applications or websites that can be found on ICT and have well-intended educational goals. The contemporary approach and use of ICT in the teaching of fine arts provides new learning opportunities that focus on the aesthetic experience and theoretical aspect of visual content. Given that it takes less time to adopt pictorial content than to adopt verbal content, today’s approach to fine arts education involves the use of ICT.
