This study therefore aimed at developing aesthetic education programme for adults in realization of sustainable development goal 11 in Rivers State, Nigeria. The study was guided by four objectives. The research and development design was adopted for the study. The population of the study was 2,022 respondents made up of 170 facilitators and 1,653 learners from the three senatorial districts in the state. The proportionate stratified random sampling technique was used to select 30% of the population as the sample size.
