The relevance of the research topic lies in the fact that Western trends dominate in contemporary the Chinese realistic art, while interest in traditional painting techniques in a realistic direction has practically disappeared. To preserve the national cultural heritage, it is necessary to study more carefully the possibilities of applying traditional ideas in modern realistic painting. The purpose of the study is to identify the features of the traditional foundations of Chinese painting and their applied value for teaching students of modern painting. The objectives of the research are to analyze the scientific literature on the topic, conduct a survey among students to assess the traditions of Chinese re-artistic painting, as well as summarize the results of empirical research. The research methodology includes the methods of the general scientific group (analysis, synthesis, induction, deduction), as well as methods of art history analysis: historical and logical; analogy method; method of formal comparison. In an empirical study, the method of statistical analysis was used, applied using the program Neural Designer, a tool for advanced statistical analysis. The research materials were the results of a survey of 3rd year students (bachelor’s degree). Three groups of students were interviewed, each of which included 25 people: two experimental groups and one control group. The author of the study came to the conclusion that the combination of traditional and modern techniques in realistic painting in the classroom can increase the motivation for learning, develop new technical skills among students studying in the specialty «painting and graphics».
