Interdisciplinary research originated in the United States in the 1920s, where teachers planned inquiry-based science courses for students, developed topics with research significance, and encouraged students to apply knowledge from multiple disciplines to solve practical problems. The 2022 edition of China's "Compulsory Education Curriculum Standard" added the section on "Interdisciplinary Theme Learning," becoming an effective pathway and important measure for cultivating talents in basic education. This article analyzes the implementation strategies of extracurricular aesthetic education practices based on interdisciplinary theme learning, using art as the foundation for teaching practices, and conducting thematic learning activities around subjects such as art, technology, sports, and nature. It effectively implements the goal of cultivating "idealistic, competent, and responsible" individuals of the times, further delving into and improving the research path of aesthetic education in the new era.
