The use of Essay, Tabular, TKT and Asei lesson plansin teaching and learning have posed multiple challenges to teachers who engaged in practical based-  topics in cultural and creative arts, especially studio and stage teaching in primary and secondary schools. A descriptive survey design was adopted to  select 50 teaching practice students of the departments of fine and applied arts and theatre arts of the Federal College of Education (Technical) Omoku,  Rivers state, Nigeria in the 2020, 2021 and 2022 academic sessions. The purpose of the research was to ascertain if a separate lesson plan can be  formulated to salvage the problematic issues facing the application of Essay, Tabular, Asei and TKT lesson plans in the teaching of cultural and creative  arts subjects in schools. At the period of investigations, a new lesson plan called “Cucrart” was invented and experimented among the student-teachers  as a way out to enhance effective teaching of cultural and creative arts in schools. Therefore, this paper is poised to introduce the methodical usage of  Cucrart lesson plan to teachers who teach cultural and creative arts and government educational agencies for frontward classroom application and  endorsement as a new lesson plan suitable for art subjects in Nigerian schools.
