Abstracts


The study examined strategies for improving the quality of visual art teachers in Nigerian colleges of education. It looked at the concepts of Visual Art Education and the Art Educator as well as the standard qualities of Visual Art Educator. It also looked at the problems affecting Visual Art Educators' performance and effects of poor quality of teachers, on graduates of Visual Art Education. Among the problems revealed by the literature are: limited number of highly qualified professionals; lack of perceptual and physical effectiveness; lack of standard visual art studios, equipment and materials for quality research. The paper also revealed that compromised teachers quality would hinder the graduates from developing intellectual skills and knowledge which will in turn lead to unemployment and poverty. To remedy the situation, the colleges of education should encourage and absorb best students of art; sponsor art teachers on art workshops, seminars and conferences from time to time; provide standard art materials, studios, books and equipment to the teachers, introduce modern techniques of performance evaluation; give grants/ loans to encourage the art teachers and stringent measures should be employed to check examination malpractices and checkmate the excesses of sexual harassment and extortion of money from students.
