“Lack Of Art Materials And Tools: The Bane Of Art Students In Nigeria”

Etim Ekpenyong Mfon


One of the problems student artists in Nigeria are facing is the lack of art materials and tools with which to execute class works. Because most of the materials and tools needed for the creation of works are imported, they are terribly expensive and may not always be available.  The thrust of this paper is to encourage local fabrication of art materials and tools using locally sourced ingredients and materials. As long as our nation remains a consumer nation (depending on other nations for art materials) rather than a producing nation, art materials such as paints will continue to be out of the reach of budding and emerging artists. Consequently, some students may not only fail their courses, but also, be discouraged to the extent of loosing faith in the profession.
