In the field of artistic education, the issue of modernization is considered in different contexts. In this chapter, the modernization of artistic education is considered as improvement, advancing, updating, and changes in accordance with the requirements of time and the macro-process of transition from the traditional view of education to innovation and its relationship with spiritual-ideological traditions. The main purpose of the modernization of artistic education is to improve the quality of the system through transformations and enhance its ability to respond adequately to the challenges of the time. The main challenge is globalization. Two philosophical concepts are considered—the concept of anthropological pedagogy and the concept of living knowledge. The basis for the modernization of the content of artistic education is a synergistic approach, which involves the integration of scientific knowledge, in particular, natural sciences and humanities. The task of artistic pedagogy is to establish a holistic view of a person, and it cannot be compensated at the objective level by traditional technologies. Integrity is a measure of spirituality, humanity, and the creative fiction of education. In the content of modern artistic education, special values are acquired by integrated special courses designed to guide future specialists in the specificity of the development of the individual’s spiritual potential, on the value basis to formulate conceptual positions aimed at preserving and enhancing spiritual and ideological values.
