Dubman, Shelia; And Others
One of six student guidebooks in a series of 11 arts and humanities career exploration guides for grade 7-12 teachers, counselors, and students, this student book on exploration of visual arts and crafts careers presents information on specific occupations in seven different career areas: Visual communications, product design, environmental design, fine arts, crafts, art education, and arts management and business. An introductory section lists over 200 job titles under the seven career areas.
