It is important in terms of art education that the individuals who take art education can benefit today's technologies, reflect the returns of these technologies to the design processes and realize the opportunities of design experimentally. Therefore, the problem of this study is to express how the effect of three dimensional studies in digital environment on student's perceptions of third dimension and their visual spatial development. The aim of this study is to show how virtual environment-oriented third dimension awareness can be improved in the design studies of the students who take the elective art workshop graphic course in the Department of Art Education. The research was carried out with 11 students who selected the Elective Art Workshop Graphic Design I course at the Fine Arts Department of Anadolu University in the fall semester of 2018-2019 academic year. The data in this study obtained by using the method of action research; and also by semi-structured interviews with students, student diaries, designs and researcher observation and diary in 12 weeks of course. In the research, students formed a unique design and transformed the three-dimensional models they designed in a virtual environment into a concrete form with model design with collaborative learning method. The students reported that this research, which focuses on three dimensional studies in digital environment, increased the awareness of the third dimension and increased their visual-spatial awareness.
