However, such an environment requires teachers to take a different approach to the organization of the educational process, to acquire new skills and abilities for work, in particular the formation of their digital competence in the digital educational space. In these conditions, the system of pedagogical education should provide training for future teachers of art disciplines, which has a high level of digital competence. The purpose of the article is to reveal the essence of the concept of «digital competence» on the basis of the analysis of scientific literature and to determine the methods of formation of future art disciplines teachers’ digital competence in higher education institutions of China. To achieve the goal of the study, the following research methods were used: analysis of scientific literature, observation, systems analysis, comparative analysis, modeling method, classification method; methods of comparative analysis and analogy, design method; methods of systematization, generalization, logical analysis, analysis of personal experience of teaching and learning, comparison and interpretation of the obtained data. The results of the study show that the digital competence of future teachers of art disciplines consists of four components: motivational-personal (internal and external motives for their future professional activity), cognitive (a set of theoretical knowledge, skills and abilities of future teachers to effectively organize the educational process using digital teaching aids), activity (practical implementation of professional and pedagogical knowledge of a future teacher, his intellectual, cognitive, technical, design and technological skills, necessary skills for effective implementation of digital technologies in the educational process) and reflection-evaluation (ability to analyze and self-analyze, coordination of goals, methods and results, awareness of their style of activity, readiness for their creative change). Conclusions. These components of digital competence of future teachers of art disciplines should be formed taking into account the specifics of professional activity and appropriate methods.
