Applied Art in Trade and Industrial Education.
King, Annie; Zirkle, Chris
Ohio Hi-Point Joint Vocational School (JVS) has developed a comprehensive art program within the vocational setting. Selected trade and industrial programs at the school, as well as programs in agriculture and home economics, incorporate art instruction. The goals of the applied art program are as follows: to give students the opportunity to recognize, analyze, and apply elements and principles of design within their specific vocational program; to help students gain an understanding of the advertising design process and gain hands-on experience in developing basic advertising designs; to enable all students to develop technique and skills in a variety of media (including graphite, colored pencils, collage, screen printing, mixed media, lettering, sign making, three-dimensional media); to teach students art skills that apply directly to their specific vocational field; and to give students the opportunity to develop a portfolio suitable for job placement. At present, applied arts instruction is integrated into the following courses at Ohio Hi-Point JVS: auto body repair, animal care and production management, building maintenance, careers with children, law enforcement, and printing and graphics.
