Fineberg, Carol
Major goals and accomplishments are presented for the arts and career education program of the Children's Art Carnival in Harlem, New York City--a program for low income minority youth (ages 8-18) which utilizes creative and communication arts as a bridge to art careers in industry, entertainment, commercial and human services. Activities, evaluation instruments, and results related to seven program objectives are described and discussed: (1) to expose eight - to fourteen-year-olds to career education experiences via the creative arts (sewing, printmaking, clay, poetry, photography, animation, puppetry, and painting); (2) to enable fourteen- to eighteen-year-olds to develop skills and competence in Communications Arts Productions, thereby increasing career understanding and options; (3) to provide counseling for participants in the Communications Arts production team units; (4) to provide participants with career education experiences fostering the development of responsible work habits and attitudes; (5) to develop communication skills; (6) to provide necessary assistance for participants with neurological, emotional, or other problems; and (7) to promote parent and community support of children's interests in the arts and art-related careers. Dissemination and special activities such as efforts to hire minorities and handicapped in an effort to project a variety of role models are mentioned. The conclusion is made that most objectives were reached and that this program is a model worth emulating.
