The study is aimed at investigating teachers’ experience of teaching Art at primary school. The survey involved Art teachers in Marvdasht and Shiraz cities in Fars Province. The participants were selected using snowball sampling method. Deep semi-structured interviews were used to collect information. The data analysis has been performed by thematic coding. The results have shown that the teachers use such teaching methods as working in small groups, role playing, group discussion, etc. in their practice. Considering the fact that the major part of knowledge is learned by students in the classroom the teaching quality is one of the most important factors in student’ achievements. Thus, teachers should strive to improve the quality of teaching.
