Career Education in the Visual Arts: Representative Programs and Practices. Monograph No. 2.
Geahigan, George, Ed.
This monograph presents descriptions of programs and projects concerned with career education in the visual arts that were identified in a national survey of state art directors, regional and city art supervisors, and others who had knowledge of ongoing art programs. The first of eight sections contains programs which have been planned and developed for entire school districts. In the second section are programs sponsored by school districts but which exist in single, somewhat specialized, school settings. In the third section are single courses of study for secondary students. The fourth section contains career education efforts involving art museums. In the fifth section are secondary career education programs and courses of study involving special institutes and college outreach efforts. Postsecondary career education programs are described in the sixth section, followed by descriptions of efforts that focus primarily upon the development and use of instructional materials and media presentations. The final section is devoted to a listing of programs and efforts for which the descriptions were not received prior to the project deadline. Each of the eight sections provides information about the names of the project directors, the funding sources, the availability of materials, and the name and address of a contact person. (LRA)
