Education is systematically organized learning that develops various skills and abilities, while teaching is just one of many forms of organized learning. Teaching consists of students, teachers, teaching materials, various teaching conditions and the relationship between the participants in the teaching process and teaching situations. There is traditional, frontal teaching where the student is only a passive observer and contemporary teaching that is geared towards the student and their needs. In order to improve the quality of teaching and for it to become more modern, we must strive for various modern methods.Planning of education in modern teaching is the task of the curriculum. The curricular approach has abandoned the idea of teaching as a transmission of knowledge.With the entry of the Republic of Croatia into the European Union, serious reforms of Croatian education began. They aspire to more modern and higher-quality teaching, also known today as the curricular reform. There are various methods of contemporary teaching and learning available today (lateral learning, brainstorming, creative problem solving, creativity technology, ability of thinking, superbrain and unlimited talents) but by comparing different research we come to the conclusion that they are rarely used in Croatian educational process.Drama education, a form of teaching and learning through dramatic experience, is one of the potential contemporary methods that should be introduced into teaching. Drama education attempts to replace learning from books with learning from experience. Drama education used to be called stage education, and it has been present in Croatia since the end of World War Two. The drama pedagogic work has been present in Croatia for a long time, but it has become a part of education only in the last ten years. When we talk about dramatic methods as teaching and learning methods, we are talking about dramatic expression in teaching. Simpler forms we use in teaching are dramatic techniques and ones that are more complex are dramatic methods. The dramatic techniques are all drama games, drama exercises and improvisations. They consist of many functional and educational tasks, can be used in all classes and are considered successful because they can create a teaching process that is of a higher quality, better and more successful, which is what the modern education strives towards. To demonstrate that dramatic education can be meaningfully incorporated into teaching, the paper proposes dramatic, didactic-methodical exercises for the teaching of Art and Croatian Language.
