The third acquisition in the “Global Environment, Regions and Countries” unit of the 11th grade geography lesson includes the goal-behavior of “ to be able to analyze the spreading areas of Turkish culture in terms of regional characteristics”. In the geography curriculum rearranged by the Republic of Turkey Ministry of National Education in 2018, the recommended approach to be followed in gaining the stated goal-behavior is explained with the statement "The main material and non-material elements representing Turkish culture are included by associating with the space through examples". With an approach that takes into account the context-based perspective suggested in the geography curriculum, this article aims to support the acquisition of knowledge content and value dimensions of the acquisition of "being able to explain the cultural geographical history of Turkish arts of printmaking and miniature by associating with space" and developing a learning content to transform them into goal-behaviors. Based on the stated aims and arguments, the importance of the Uighur art of painting, which is known to have reached maturity between the 8th and 13th centuries with the empowerment of the classical style, which is based on strong pattern drawings, has been evaluated by preserving the intangible cultural heritage elements and its importance in terms of art history. Later, the Uighur graphic style, in which the traces of the old Turkish traditions are continued, based on rock paintings, in other words the element of line; It is interpreted in the context of the themes used in the dominant compositions in the spaces where the style finds living space. In the literature research conducted within the scope of the examination of research works prepared by using Chinese annuals and Western sources, content analysis, one of the techniques frequently used in social sciences research, was used.
