COVID-19 has an enormous impact on the economy, social, and education system of the country. Traditionally, cinematography, music, drama and theatre, animation, fine arts and other applied and creative arts students were required to perform hands-on tasks during the learning session. However, due to the Movement Control Order (MCO), they have to adapt to a new learning method which has been switched from blended to fully online learning. Hence, the main objective of this study is to assess the association of demographic factors on the psychological status of art students in online learning. This quantitative research used the 12-items Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale (DASS-12) questionnaire. A total of 161 first-year arts students who experienced online learning at the University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) participated in this study. The demographic profiles were analysed through descriptive and correlational analysis. The result yielded that the number of family members shows a significant difference in stress levels among these first-year students. Hence, it can be concluded that the higher the number of family members living in the same residence, the higher the tendency for the student to experience negative psychological effects.
