Abstract: This study dwells predominantly on the teaching strategies employed by Graphic Design teachers and the learning outcomes of their students. The study purposefully examines the pedagogical approaches of teachers, considering the limited resources available, and how they affect students’ acquisition of concepts and skills. Observation, interviews and questionnaires were the instruments used for collecting pertinent data. Having gathered substantial data from the target teachers and their students in eight Senior High Schools in the Kumasi metropolis, it was evident that there were inadequate professional graphic design teachers, lack of studios, computer laboratory, equipment and other facilities for the execution of Graphic Design works. Besides, the lecture method of teaching was mainly employed by the teachers, and this affected the students’ skills acquisition and academic achievements. It was also observed that there were no Ghana Education Service (GES) recommended text books for the teaching of Graphic Design and teachers had to depend on unapproved books published by individuals for the teaching of the subject. Lack of these material resources, coupled with incompetent use of some relevant design software and incomprehensive evaluation criteria by the teachers, students’ learning outcomes were found to have been affected negatively.
