Abstract

 

Earlier works done in addressing poverty in Nigeria were chiefly theoretical academicism and endless discourses with little or no tangential result, hence the intention of this paper to elucidate the indispensability of Integrated Art Programme (IAP), as a component of the Nations Educational Policy, very imperative. Educational programmes are designed at targeting making a complete means of livelihood, as well as being an end in itself and invariably an essential ingredient for full realization of the entire capacity of the person. The thrust of every curriculum must be practical driven towards achieving the goals. The Integrated Art Programme (IAP) refers to an Art and Craft based curriculum which impacts the initiatives for entrepreneurial skills and the know how in the learner, and this will in turn be a check against extreme poverty and hunger in Nigeria.  Education should be targeted at empowering and counterweighting the limits of social and economic mobility that are imposed by socio-cultural biases, gender and ethnic discrimination, and history. This paper elucidates the importance of the Integrated Art in the full implementation of the national policy on education in Nigeria as a strategy for job creation and a check to extreme poverty. Various possibilities of generating and creating forms both for aesthetic and for applied values will be explored.
