Abstract: This study was made to investigate the effects of the use of computers by the Art students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi on their creativity in art productions. A total of 200 art students of the fourth year were involved in the study. The instrument consisted of a 20-item Likert scale questionnaire designed and validated by the researcher to elicit the desired responses from the students. The elements of creativity that were investigated included among others, the computer’s ability or otherwise to surpass humans in creative art productions in terms of speed, flexibility, versatility, precision, capacity, efficiency and aesthetics. The responses of the questionnaires were coded. The mean and Standard deviations of the responses were calculated. The responses were later correlated through the use of the Pearson cor-relation formula. Computer was used in processing all data. The results showed varied intercorrelation. The views of the respondents showed a positive stance, which the researcher believes, arose out of enough experience or exposure to computers and their potentials. Based on these results a conclusion was made.
