The Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) conducted by WAEC is the examination that marks the end of secondary education. In other words, it is the final examination that secondary school students write usually towards the end of their SS 3.

The success rate of students taking part in this examination keeps declining with every passing year. There are many reasons responsible for this outcome.

But one of the reasons is that most of the candidates do not prepare well for the examinations. Many just depend on the lesson notes from their classes. Others read just any textbook they can lay their hands on. They fail to realize that it is not all textbooks that provide a complete coverage of the syllabuses of WAEC subjects.

The essence of this post is to enlighten you on WAEC recommended textbooks for Visual Art.

But I’m also going to drop the following links for you here:

  • NECO recommended text books for Visual Art examination.
  • Link to WAEC syllabus for Visual Art.
  • List of subjects offered in senior secondary school.

Visual Art

Visual art refers to any form of art that is primarily visual in nature. This includes painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video and so on. It encompasses a wide range of styles and techniques, from realistic to abstract. It can as well be used to express a variety of emotions and ideas.

More often than not, visual art is created for the purpose of aesthetic enjoyment, communication, expression and interpretation. It can be used to tell a story, convey a message or explore a theme or an idea.

Visual artists use various elements and principles of art such as color, line, texture, form and composition to create their work.

WAEC Recommended Textbooks For Visual Art 2024

WAEC recommended textbooks for Visual Art are textbooks that WAEC examiners have taken time to go through and determined that they provide the best coverage, approach and explanations of the topics in Visual Art syllabus.

This is one of the several reasons why WAEC is a  standard external examination body. They provide their candidates with both syllabuses and recommended textbooks.

The syllabuses state the scope of the subjects and the learning objectives. The recommended textbooks are the ones that cover the syllabuses adequately using the best teaching approach.

WAEC expects every SSCE candidate who desires to ace the examinations to make use of both the syllabuses and recommended texts in their preparation.
