Tolmachyova, Elena Vladimirovna – Post-graduate student, Teacher of Technical Lyceum, Far Eastern State Transport University.
The modern education process has undergone considerable changes. Firstly, psychological reality has changed. The traditional educational paradigm "Knowledge-Skills-Practice" is aimed only at psychological reality - "to learn and to apply". But there is another reality "Inclinations - Ability-Talent" that is not taken into consideration by the traditional paradigm. The author describes an attempt of theoretical and practical comprehension of the possibilities of artistic cognition of reality by the pupils of the lyceum at the technical university in the Far East.
Key words: artistic cognition of reality, cognitive activity, activities, subjective experience, quality of a person.
