This paper provides a critical analysis of art-based research in education, that is, in constructivist learning and teaching. It presents the methodological features and advantages of art-based research in terms of the axiological, ontological and epistemological features of the constructivist, participatory and critical scientific paradigm, and the manifestations thereof in teaching and learning. In this respect, art-based research belongs to qualitative research with an emphasis on narrative research, phenomenology, grounded theory, ethnography and case studies, including a series of qualitative methods for collecting data, primarily the creative process, autoethnographic introspection and expression, but also interviews, recordings and participatory observation. An analysis of the said scientific paradigms, the features of constructivist teaching, and art-based research indicates their compatibility based on the co-construction of knowledge as a creative process. Such ontological and epistemological features of learning are suitable for art-based research, as it is used to study the introspective processes of constructing one-s own knowledge as a creative process and its results. This paper examines the implications of art-based research in the practical and theoretical investigation of the research of learning and teaching.
