The art and architecture relationship is discussed within the context of historical process since the first mankind product. Moreover, the art and architecture are mentioned as the most important components through the history of civilisation. Art is a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities; which depend on the creation of images or objects in fields including painting, sculpture, photography, and other visual media and also architecture. Each artwork is the product of its artist's creativity. The artist forms his artwork through his lifetime experiences in a subjective way by the help of artistic expression, which is as same as for an architect and his architectural work. The art of painting as an art form is the specific shape, or quality an artistic expression takes, which is as same as for an architectural form, and the methods used through for a painting is nearly as same as the methods that an architect uses for his architecture. In the view of this phenomenon, the paper focuses on the relationship between painting and architecture through basic design education. The common elements and principles in painting and architecture will be held in details with examples, to put forward the importance of relationship between two fields, in the aim of proposing a new teaching/learning strategy for basic design education. In the light of this aim, mainly the " space " concept, which is the most common element for an artistic and architectural work will be exemplified with the course practices produced
