Abstract: This paper proposes a model for art teaching and learning. It identifies approaches to particular content of Ghanaian visual arts which justifies their uniqueness as a field of study. Six modes of art learning have been outlined: (1) the sources from which the artist finds ideas for artistic expression; (2) the tools and materials he uses; (3)the technical processes employed in creating the artifacts; (If) study of the artifact as a social object; (5.) symbolic meaning and social significance of the artifact; (6) uses of the artifact. These modes are distinct subjects for study. The model is consistent with Ghanaian visual arts. It integrates cultural and social content with three modes of human development -cognitive, psychomotor and affective modes with the approaches to study.
