Careers in Art. Career Development Project.
Gergeceff, Lorraine; Wheeler, Geoffrey
The 10 activities in the unit on art careers attempt to provide eighth and ninth grade students with opportunities for acquiring occupational information, to help students discover themselves in relation to art careers, and to explore various clusters of careers. The suggested occupational areas are: architecture, product design, cartooning, interior decoration, letters and posters, special design, fine arts, dress and fabric design, and graphic interior design. The introduction discusses the overview of the course, major objectives and strategies. A few major topics examined in the course are: the purpose and function of a product design; the role of advertising; periods of trial, error and discovery; and success factors. Each lesson investigates an occupational cluster and is organized around goal, performance objective, activities, and outcome measure. A resource list supplements each lesson. Activities involve vocabulary building appropriate to the career, field trips, suggestions for discussion, suggested projects (displays, models, reproductions), media, and occupational research. A list of art-related careers completes the document. (JB)
