ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN VISUAL ARTS

Okogwu Antonia

Abstract: Visual Arts Education System is based on practical studio oriented studies that are less lettered but highly academic and pragmatic practices, tailored to suit the direct needs of the society. This is contrary to the idealistic educational conventions pervading Nigeria educational system. Visual Art Educational Scheme of study perhaps holds the key as an alternative to the education system that is self-reliant and self-sustaining as opposed to the numerous heavily lettered educational schemes that have rendered many graduates unemployed in a growing economy with fast growing population. Visual Art Education System specializes in practical studio training in various fields of endeavour: Sculpture, Painting, Ceramics, Textiles, Graphics and of course the theoretical ones as Art Education, Art History and Art Administration .The training of a Studio Artist is such that he is self-reliant and self-employed and as such is very different from the common educational schemes that are geared towards making students heavily dependent on white collar jobs that are few or none at all in Nigerian economy of today, thereby making them handicapped in this present dispensation .There is something to learn in the studio system of education so as to redesign other courses within the tertiary institutions in order to lessen the pressure on unemployment in the Country.
