|Abstract: ||Economic developments the world ever are associated with the technological advancement and the utilization of human and material resources. These depend on effective and high level manpower and available resources. The secret behind the success of many developed nations has been their ability to address firmly, their manpower needs and potential resources. They tap on the ingenuity and hard work of their creative and trained manpower to transfers their natural resources to benefit areas of national development. Their achievements have, therefore, been the result of a systematic programme of co-ordination between man- power development and manpower administration. These are applied to requisite areas or sectors of national development.
Ghana as a developing nation needs to adopt this approach to transform its vast and un-tapped human and material resources for development in the local environment. Although a high level of manpower is trained, there is the lack of the co-ordination of the link to tune attitudes and behaviour toward the transformation of such resources that are at the disposal of the nation.
Areas where such high levels of manpower production can be applied to boost up the economy and various sectors of national development, have not been clearly described, analysed and applied Seriously to yield maximum rewarding outcomes. For example, the College of Art as the highest institution of art in Ghana has potential resources that can benefit Ghana to achieve self sufficiency, self-reliance, self-actualisation and self-fulfilment in artistic needs for its citizens and nation as a whole.
Application of such resources that exist in the College can boost up the economy, whereby the lukewarm attitudes attached to the College of Art could be rectified. Such attitudes have led to the apparent resistance to change in the direction of increased outreach to and access f or Ghanaians to have a true sharing of the discoveries and skills developed by the College. Ghanaians are unable to relate the implication of the resources existing in the College to the content of education. There is the lack of inculcation of a spirit of innovation, creativity and patriotism in the expertise to make the college more cost-effective.
This Thesis is therefore an attempt to research into the college of Art as a potential resource centre for art education in Ghana.
