The aim of this study is to reveal the views and descriptions of the students studying in the field of classroom education at a state university in Turkey regarding the effectiveness of the Traditional Turkish Handicraft course, which is an important course in the transfer of intangible cultural heritage in the distance education process. The case design, one of the qualitative research designs, was used in the study. In the two-stage research, in the first stage, the opinions of the participants about the course in question were collected with a semi-structured interview form developed by the researcher and analyzed by creating codes and themes. In the second stage of the study, the participants were asked to draw a picture describing the distance education process related to the course. The answers given by the participants to the questions in the one-to-one interviews and the painting studies carried out supported the research to become more meaningful. It was ensured that the participants were able to express their feelings that they could not express verbally more easily with pictures. Thus, the effects of the pandemic were analyzed by creating codes and themes based on the emotional expressions used by the participants in their pictures. As a result of the research, it was revealed by the findings of the study that the majority of the participants had a negative opinion about the distance education of the Traditional Turkish Handicrafts course. In addition, it was stated that the course was found beneficial by the majority of the students, but the course fell into a disadvantageous position in the distance education process. When the participants' views on learning environments about the effectiveness of artistic courses such as the Traditional Turkish Handicrafts course in the future were examined, it was concluded that the majority of them had negative views.
