Historically every generation of mankind continue to search for socio-economic development and self- actualization for human survival. The quest for self- actualization became a panacea for skill acquisition, development, discovery and modernization which in a real sense can best be achieved through the fundamentals of Art and Industrial Design. The modern transformation of visual arts which encompass technological and scientific approach for Industrial revolution can be achieved through Graphics, Ceramics, Textiles, Glass Technology, Clothing technology, Photography and Leather technology. Therefore, these Industrial Design courses prompt and give room for basic skills acquisition and development which enhance innovation and invention through critical thinking and application using different media for self-expression. Consequently, this paper highlights the importance of art and industrial design in developing different skills as well as involves innovations and invention for self- actualization in art, science and technology trends.
