    This Master's thesis describes the development of an interdisciplinary project that was created through the artistic consideration of movement and fine arts and their integration into the learning process. First, a theoretical basis is provided along with some starting points connected with creativity, art and the integration of different kinds of art into primary schools. The theoretical is followed by the empirical part of the research, and includes a teaching model based on artistic experience and the project Movement and its traces, which included a series of interdisciplinary graphic and dance workshops for third-year primary school students. We developed both the model and the project as part of the research. The workshops were connected with the final dance and fine arts show entitled Factory of Ideas, which was performed in a museum. This connection is described in the thesis, along with certain methodological instruments (visual tests, unstructured interviews, SWOT analysis and analysis of university student portfolios), which were used to test responses and changes observed in primary school students that took part in the action-research, together with feedback from university students and teachers on the integration of dance and fine arts into the learning process. In the Master's thesis we conclude that primary school students responded positively (emotionally) to the integration of dance and fine arts into the learning process. They extended their conceptual fields and their impressions of the discussed concepts, acquired a considerable body of new knowledge, and expressed the desire to work in a similar way in the future. Other project participants also had positive experiences with this particular instance of integration of art into learning process, while this example of best practice also serves as encouragement for further similar cooperation, with the aim of effecting the holistic integration of art into primary schools.
