|Abstract: ||Ghana like any developing African country is predominantly a rural community with an economy supported by few Industries and the traditional crafts which use some of the country's agricultural products. This paper examines the teaching of the main crafts and expresses concern about the insufficient attention given to the subject in the early, years. The paper however,commends Governor Guggisberg’s vision, of Art Teaching in relation to the industries of the locality, and the efforts of Herman Meyerowitz to train Art Specialists in Achlmota College in the late 40s and early 50s for the teaching of this subject in the schools.
Finally it recommends the reinstitution of the recently abolished Art Specialists1 courses in the Teacher Training Colleges, and the diversification of the B.A.(Art) courses in this University,as a measure to increase the numerical strength of Art specialists for the schools and industries.|
