Skill Acquisition and the Entrepreneurial Factor: Ceramics as an Instrument of Social Development
AbstractThe sudden adoption of Entrepreneurial Studies into the National Universities Commission’s Benchmark for Minimum Academic Programmes in tertiary institutions in Nigeria is a welcome move. This endorses the indispensability of skill training in the national struggle for poverty alleviation through job-creation and wealth-generation. The theoretical pedagogy in the classroom environment is a basic entry point for such courses, but in effect, it is only one hemisphere of a two-point approach for proper grounding in entrepreneurship. Perhaps no other discipline or area of study lends itself wholeheartedly to entrepreneurial project than Art— Visual and Creative Arts. To properly situate any skill, the question of raw material endowment, technical mastery and sustainability remain mainline factors to consider. This paper aspires to engage the above in the bid to locate their relevance in skill acquisition .
