: In this study, it was aimed to develop a scale whose validity and reliability are provided in order to determine the concerns of secondary school students about Visual Arts lesson. The 5-point likert draft Visual Arts lesson anxiety scale (VALAS) consisting of 23 items was applied to 333 students in 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade in different schools in Ağrı city center in the 2018-2019 academic year. After the exploratory factor analysis (EFA), a measurement instrument consisting of 12 items and 2 sub-dimensions was obtained. The first dimension was named as “anxiety towards the course”, and the second dimension was named as “the anxiety towards the process.” It is seen that the first dimension consists of 6 items and the factor load value is between .620 and .818, and the second dimension consists of 6 items and it has a factor load value between .611 and .773. Factor common variances were observed to be between .377 and .675. As a result of the analyzes, it was seen that the sacle explains 51,338% of the total variance. In addition, it was determined that the eigenvalues of each dimension were greater than 1 and had a variance of 33,541% and 17,797%, respectively. Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) was performed to determine the degree to which the determined structure was confirmed. In this respect, data from a different student group of 282 people were collected for CFA. As a result, the research group consisted of 615 students. As a result of the CFA, the suitability of the factor structures obtained from EFA was demonstrated. The Cronbach Alpha coefficient of the VALA scale was found to be 810
