    Lojze Čemažar is a Slovene academic painter who has been working in this field for over thirty years. Despite the fact that his work is widespread and was also presented in numerous group and solo exhibitions, it has not yet been comprehensively discussed and catalogued. On the basis of discussion with the artist and parish priests and by using the literature, I have prepared a list of his religious works. Due to the extent of his artistic work (his works of art are in over sixty different religious buildings) I decided to focus only on his murals in Slovenia. Determination of the painter’s style and formal analysis was done using his mural Zadnja večerja (The Last Supper) in Dornberk. The method used for this analysis is discussed in the scientific monograph entitled Sistematika stila (The Systematics of Style) by Izidor Cankar. To understand and experience his art, the »Ways in« art interpretation method was chosen as one of the more suitable methods in contemporary Art teaching. The method strives for interdisciplinarity and attempts to include the pupil as a whole. At the same time the method gives an answer to one of the questions of contemporary art education, i.e. how the work of art should be presented to the pupils so that they would be able to explore and critically evaluate it. Teacher resources based on the »Ways in« interpretation method comprise the didactical part of the thesis and are designed for art educators and others. They consist of expanded content on the specific artwork, questions and activities which guide the interpretation, and concrete examples of art activities. The didactical part meets the increasing demands for the interconnection of educational fields and cross-curricular teaching. The works of art are the source of these connections. The artwork Last Supper was used to link different school subjects: Art, Religion and ethics and Citizenship and homeland education and ethics.
