Exploring Careers in Art: 60+ Activities -PAPERBACK Shipped to you
Likely you are a creative person researching possible careers in art, an art teacher looking for ways to help your students connect their art learning to art careers, a substitute teacher looking for fun lessons to have “in your back pocket,” or a home school parent looking for new ways to encourage your son or daughter in art. The activities are especially well suited for students in grades 4-10. Exploring Careers in Art is a great resource for anyone looking for a user-friendly guide to different art careers.
Given the stereotype of the ‘starving artist’ it is no wonder that many people do not seriously consider pursuing a career in art. However, there are many creative people who have a passion for art that use their skills in many different successful art careers. The 64 career activities in this book showcase a range of careers from those in designing for communicating, fashion and product design, environmental design, entertainment design, as well as careers in instructing, interacting and interpreting art.
Career Challenge Activity Pages
At the beginning of this book there are over 60 one-page career challenge activities. They are designed to be done right on the page or easily photocopied. Each career challenge page gives a prompt for the activity, a checklist of key components/requirements and space to work.
Mini Art Career Guide
On pages 65-68 pages you will find a one page overview of the research of psychologist John Holland who found a correlation between certain personality traits and career satisfaction. Next is a quick quiz that gives the reader an indication of their ‘work personality’. Finally, there is a list of careers that tend to suite people who score Artistic as one of their highest-ranking personality traits.
