During the art education process, students who are afraid to come up with new ideas and express their ideas, who turn to memorization or copy studies, and as a result, who produce studies that are far from creativity, are often encountered. In this research, it is aimed to give students the opportunity to express their opinions and put forward original studies without fear of making mistakes with brainstorming technique aimed at generating creative ideas. This research, using the method of action research, was carried out in the 2020-2021 academic year, in elective visual arts class, for 4 weeks, with 14 sixth graders. 57% of the students participating in the study are girls and 43% are boys. The data of the research were collected through semi-structured interview and document review. Explanatory analysis and document analysis were used in the analysis of the data. In the study, it was found that students can come up with more creative ideas based on the ideas of others. In the study, it was found that the students were successful in the process of producing ideas with brainstorming technique and applying the ideas they produced in visual arts course. In this direction, brainstorming technique can be proposed to ensure that visual arts course can be passed more efficiently by supporting students to produce effective ideas and put forward creative studies.
