The main principles of semiotics analysis of paintings and the use of them in educational process in High School are considered. The purpose is to show the possibility of this method for students by E. Munch’s work. We see the artist’s work from the standpoint of his life, perception of reality, and from facts which influence on his forming artistic imagery, and which will be in his further works realized. During the consideration of this methodology the main principles of semiotics approach were identified, that allows to create your own artistic image in the process of co-creative artistic perception and besides his philosophical and moral-aesthetic views. An important element of this approach is the fact that as a result it forms the specific competencies of the learner, indicated in the state educational standard. In addition, this technique allows to access the history of the art of the image created by the author in a historical context, as well as his pre-double in a modern viewer world. In the result, it was proven that the method of semiotic analysis allows the student to use data from different sources, which are necessary for a holistic perception of the artwork.
