This paper examined fine art teaching and its challenges in the 21st century post covid-19 era. Fine art teaching does have challenges that it is already contending with in this 21st century with technological dominance. Yet, the entrance of covid-19 has compounded the contending challenges. Utilizing the methodology of qualitative approach to scholarship via exposition and analysis, this paper argued that, where fine art teachers brace up to the challenges or confront them squarely, the challenges would become steps unto advancement in creative solutions to artistic problems. The data employed in the analysis were primarily derived from extant literature in the visual arts education and they established that skills acquired in fine art enables the student to practice art in the society to make his/her livelihood and contribute to the society, i.e. national development. In this post covid-19 era, it was advocated that, in fine art teaching, the teachers blend the conventional approach of teaching with online facilitation in order to avoid the hazard of covid-19 which seems to have come to stay with man, following the changing wave called covid-19 variants, hence we are experiencing it in the progressions of 2nd, 3rd, 4th et cetera waves resurgence causing great panic and making covid-19 vaccination certain for man. This paper recommended among others that online teaching should be made mandatory to fine art teachers in the present dispensation following the tremendous benefits to both teachers and students.
