    Working with children suffering from learning issues prompted us to find new possible ways to stimulate their motivation, concentration, creativity, and self-expression. We discovered a possibility in combining the expression of our fine arts works with learning support. We have developed a tool consisting of a fine arts artwork reproduction (FAR) to address the selected pupil from several aspects. The procedure entailed analysis, description, observation, choice and practical work. The research encompasses a Pre-research period, Part 1 and Part 2, and makes up altogether 52 sessions with the pupil. With a quality analysis of the data, generated with the help of interviews, journals and pupil’s self-assessments, we established that these activities had contributed to the increase of the pupil’s motivation, concentration, how he felt, creativity, and the frequency of his self-expression. The pupil’s self-assessments of all the seven items, i.e. willingness for school work, relaxedness, motivation, curiosity, concentration, restedness and security express a positive impact of our work that – to a considerable extent – contributed to the formation of a secure space for discussion and school work. We found that the pupil’s feeling of security had a pronounced impact on his motivation for school work, how he was feeling, concentration and creativity. The more directed and structured procedure in Part 2 of the research proved even more efficient. The research represents an asset for pupils with learning issues, especially in the sense of creating a secure space where, for him/her, doable steps toward a common goal can happen.
