Full Text PDF

Abstract:

Art is everything in life, no nation or society survives without art. It can also be seen as a natural and immediate form of expression. It equips the teeming youths or the citizenry with job opportunities and reduces unemployment rate, but on the other hand, unemployment and national insecurity is drastically on the increase. This necessitated the assessment of fine and applied arts curriculum in terms of human capacity building in north eastern Nigeria. Two research questions were formulated to guide the researcher in the study. A descriptive survey research design was adopted to seek the opinion of the respondents. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data from 50 students and 12 lecturers from three colleges of education from three states of north eastern Nigeria, these are:- Federal College of Education (Tech) Potiskum, Yobe State, Federal College of Education (Tech) Gombe, Gombe State and College of Education Azare, Bauchi State. The total of 62 subjects was used as the population. Statistical mean was used to answer the research questions and t-test was used to analyze the hypothesis at 0.05 level of significance. In the findings, infrastructure and facilities are so much lacking. Some recommendations were made one of which is: there is the need for an analytical curriculum.
