In the Bauhaus School, where the togetherness of art and craft is prioritized and the social mission of the artist is brought to the fore, products were produced in many fields of art with the master-apprentice relationship. The Bauhaus school has had a worldwide influence and has had an impressive role in many fields. İsmail Hakkı Tonguç, the founder of the Village Institutes, was also one of the names affected by the Bauhaus influence, so the effects of the Bauhaus approach were observed in the structuring of the Village Institutes. In this study, the art education approaches of the Bauhaus School and Village Institutes, their perspectives on artists and educators are compared and discussed. The education curricula of the schools are based on theoretical and practical education, and the understanding of education is based on the job. Individuals who graduate as artists and educators are producers, technical staff and community educators. The way and purpose of applying art in these schools differ. Artistic practice in the institutes is based on economy and includes necessity, the artistic practice in Bauhaus represents the freedom of the artist.
